White Pines and Trout Waters

I’ve been seeing lots of huge white pines recently. Here’s the bark

And here’s a bit of prose I shared with you earlier, from Henry David Thoreau

I also hiked by some beautiful trout streams and wanted to give a shout out to my brother, Pete

He would have worked these waters while I made excuses as to why I was not catching anything

Today was wrinkly acorn day

A four lobed sassafras, like a four leafed clover

I went left, it being a Tuesday and all

A few other nice moments of the day

And the fungi were looking good 

Some American chestnuts from a rare nut producing tree

Rolling on,

    So cool to see the chestnuts. Thanks for sharing all the photos.

      Pat, My pleasure – seems like I’ve been seeing one or two chestnut trees a day with fruit – maybe I’m just more observant now.
