|Beware of the ghoul who guards "Poppy"|
Are the parts below an old sugaring operation ?
The rock piles and walls that follow were created many years ago.
|This mossy rock pile is separate from and located inside the bordering rock walls. It reminds us of a grave site.|
|All these rocks were pushed into this pile to make the land farm-able and/or mark the property line. An old wire fence runs along the walls.|
|"Aunt Cairns", on top of the huge rock pile, are named after Aunt Karen, our aunt who lives in California. Aunt Karen walked Poppy with us dozens of moons ago.|
|We especially love the the old rock wall along the left side of this path as it meanders the entire length of "Dark Forest".|
|I dug this large fire pit with a shovel and brought the rocks over the very hard way, one by one. As I labored I thought of the great hardworking western river runner, Bert Loper.|
Ellie, Esther and Stanley dressed in safety garb romp in the streams:
|All three dogs stand next to one of the widest trees on Poppy. The giant pine tree is also in the picture below.
A cluster of bright white birch trees sits on top of Dark Forest.
