Anyway, late last month we took a 5 day camping trip to an area we haven't visited in several years. In fact the last time we hiked along this trail system our dogs were less than 5 months old. We got a lot of exercise helping with some trail cleanup along the Sugar Cane Trail.
The following pictures show a nice stand of sugar cane which can be found in abundance along this picturesque trail!
Loved this section of the trail which snaked around small hills! Such an awesome place to explore!
Pregnant tree? Nope! Just a wood burl, which may have been caused by a fungal or viral infection when the tree was experiencing some type of stress. In doing some research on these unique growths, I have learned that in some cases, they can take up to 30-40 years to mature. Very Interesting!
Little Breezy doesn't miss a thing! She knows exactly what it means when Don picks up his backpack and binoculars. Time to go for a nice hike through the woods!
Nothing more beautiful than an inviting trail devoid of litter! Always try to practice the LEAVE NO TRACE philosophy of wilderness camping!
