The legacy of life in a nickel mining town which processed ore by roasting it in open fields for months on end within a forestry industry region: heavily acidified soils that continue to require aggressive remediation. *sigh*

The next time I get over to the Lower Spanish, I will definitely share pictures of some of the stretches of old growth forest because they are awe-inspiring!

That shot of Cliff Palace is amazing, and leaves me totally lost for scale. Bet those antlers are off to souvenir shops!!! And Janice: Yay Sudbury! Took a tour of the Big Nickel mine many many moons ago.

I thought it all got cut to a) build Chicago and b) for copper mine timbering.

That would be totes worth seeing. I need to get up to the UP of MI to see some of the old growth stuff they’ve got up there, but it’s kind of a schlep from my family’s Michigan compound.

On the other hand, Fratguy looks like a really handy fella to have around the campfire. Definitely a male lesbian, as I expected and declared.

He’s certainly got a lesbian-style beanie on!

Great pictures, by the way! We don’t get so much elk up here as moose, but nobody’s collected that many moose antlers in one fell swoop, far as I know.

They’re really a lot less impressive when you realize that elk are farmed out here for meat! But, hey: never let something useful go unused. We must respect the sacred gift of protein and use the animals thoroughly if we’re going to eat ‘em.
