Lakhiknows... what's best! "Turn back!" are her sentiments about the logging path we frequented last year on most of our walks. It is now impassable due to fallen tree limbs :( that mainly occurred on a single day; the now infamous Christmas day ice storm of 2009. We awoke to crackling popping noisesechoing through the woods. Branches and trees (even young strong ones) snapped off from the early morning, through the day and into the night. The snow has now thoroughly thawed better allowing us to venture out and see first hand the state of the forest.
