THROUGH THE WOODS: A Messy Woods
HAVE YOU EVER CONSIDERED the style or history of a forest? In the Adirondack Mountains of NY State, there are forest areas where nature has been left to itself and hosts many forms of life not seen in places that man has disturbed. In my youth I hiked the Northville-Plattsburgh Trail to Northville Lake Placid Trail. One spring, a friend and I carried loaded backpacks and used a network of fallen trees to cross a flooded marsh covering this trail. We followed markers on standing trees and jumped from one flattened tree to another until we found someone’s faded flannel shirt and jeans lying on a log. We looked around for the owner and worried we would find someone deceased in the deep mud. Thankfully we didn’t, but questions still linger.
