We took a drive out there with our realtor today, and these are some things we experienced.
|Much of the upland acreage is wild pineywoods, a dense and unruly forest characteristic of this area. I estimate it was last logged perhaps 40 years ago.|
|January is fairly colorless here so this doesn't look very picturesque, but this is Peach Creek, which Nyx investigated gingerly.|
|Trees reflecting in the opalescent waters of Peach Creek.|
|A massive, massive elm (I think) down by the creek in the thick of the bottomland hardwoods.|
|Speaking of trees, I'm fairly familiar with this area, and I'd never seen one like this before. It resembled a species of birch, and it grew in abundance on the property. Here, the sun has backlit the bark making it appear |
more orange than usual.
|In one spot, I found the weathered remains of a cow, including these spalling vertebrae.|
|He was born with a nylon spoon in his mouth... and that is one unhappy dog, tethered because the place was crammed with other excitable canines on this extraordinary day (65 degrees F, speckless sky, with hard freeze expected within 24 hours).|
|It's easy to see why natural selection |
might favor brindle coloration...
|Poor suffering dog needs sympathy because of |
that leash situation....
