My pleasure, you're welcome. I didn't think any of the photos would post as they didn't show up where I was trying to place them.

The one time I was there looking for old growth nearby, the campsites looked so bad I didn't think I'd could ever stay at one. Even if you pick up the macro garbage, the micro is endless. Not too...

Is it too late to add Hemlock Woolly Adelgid to the list? Saw the announcement from the DEC last week and was disheartened. It's been in our area for at least ten years and in some locations has...
