Logging machines always disturbs the peace.
We went out to the bog on our walk when I came home from work and even if it rained it was quite nice. The dogs ran around close enough so I didn’t have to shout after them and small birds were flying between the trees. I think I heard a squirrel or two as well somewhere high up in the pines.
It was that strange kind of light that usually comes just before the sun sets, sort of yellowish-orange and it sort of makes me feel warm and the forest cosy. Suddenly I heard a car coming down the gravel road that goes parallel with the one we walked on, it drove fast down the road and came back in that high speed after a minute or two. Suddenly deers came running in panic and then it sounded like all hell broke loose in front of us.
I didn’t understand what it was at first but I could hear big trees cracking and falling down and then I heard what it was, a logging machine. Some trees it saw before they fell but some it just broke. I knew this day was coming but still I got sort of schocked. They are thinning out that little part of the forest where I have taken some of the best mushroom photographs. I haven’t been able to go there this year since they had trimmed down all small trees and bushes and just left them there.
They won’t take down the entire forest though because they’ll have cattle there all year long and need the forest to protect them when bad storms arrive. But still, it has always been a favorite place for me to walk around in and the only place really safe during hunting season, the former owner wanted as many deers as possible to hide there se we would have plenty left after the hunting season.
tonight it’s Grimm on channel six and I do hope I can stay awake until then 🙂 🙂 🙂 I’ll see if I have any coffee left, that usually helps for a short while anyway 🙂
Have a great day!
