Spring Ride

Some of the trails are in pretty bad shape...but oh so beautiful

Most main trails are at least passable but completely cleared
looks different than this!

The Hexenhaus is still standing

There is beauty in the destruction

Oh yes, I did some "collecting"

Word that comes to mind??  Twisted

My Pine Cone tribute

Buchenhain side of the Park - Aftermath Hurricane Niklaus

This side of the park did not fare any better

Throughout the forest, trees were blown over.  They seemed to
go in lines.  Probably when one fell down, it was like a
domino affect.  The damage is breathtaking.

Although most paths and trails have been cleared, not all.  This
shows what it looks like right after the storm.  I didn't dare go
into the downed trees to get a closer look.  Not only do the damaged and
downed trees have to be cleared but often neighboring trees.
Until this path is completely worked, it is off limits due to
possible falling trees and branches.

Hurricane Niklaus Aftermath in Forstenrieder Park

Most of the trails and paths look like this

The foresters have been busy but there is still so much to do
