Photo Theme- Blowdowns

These photo themed threads always seem to do well, and everyone seems to enjoy them. So I figured I give it a go! Afaik no one has done one on blowdowns, i just thought it'd be different.

I took this on the Heart Pond Trail in the PLWA in June of 2013

OK, I'll throw a few of the more memorable blowdowns from my wanderings to Dexter Lake, Lizard Pond and Cod Pond.

Last two are in the Pharaoh Lake Wilderness Area.

Clay Meadow trail, Tongue Mountain Range, this past weekend. Unable to confirm "blow" down. Judging by its condition, it may have just fallen down all on its own.



There was a surprising amount of blowdown on the trail out to Moncalm Pt, actually. The only other one I snapped a photo of is this half down tree over the trail.

1995 aftermath

I finally found the photos taken one year after the 1995 microburst that strongly devastated the Five Ponds Wilderness. These were taken during a training week for wilderness guides while on the "trail" from Lows Lake to Big Deer Pond, June 1996. Land navigation paradise.

I was at Wolf Pond earlier that year,'96, and a snake would have had a tough time getting in or out of there.

Was there today.

This is a great trail IMO. A steady climb up to the lean to but lots to see... waterfalls, rock formations, cliffs, etc... One of the best climbs I've been on in a while

I wish i had pics from the time we did macomb right after floyd came through. From the leanto up to the slide was nothing but walking on a mess of logs suspended 15' above the ground. It was very fun and nerve racking at the sane time!

The damage from this blow down had to be repaired quickly . The 2 wives made it very clear that the "sweet shoppe" WILL BE RETURNED TO IT'S PROPER UPRIGHT POSITION THAT DAY .

At the end of September we came upon this huge tree down across the Northville Placid Trail between Silver Lake and Canary Pond (click image for full size)




And everything it pulled up with its roots (click image for full size)
