|Into the canal, part 1: Something he's never done before- go down the canal to get a drink...|
|Part 2: Bound and determined there is something to sniff down there- or was|
|Later, across the bridge and over to the big wood pile: No luck.|
With the picture above it's time for another "Purdue cannot manage a forest" rant. Here we see a log that has been laying there for at least four years that this winter "needed to be cut up." This was an ongoing thing; the University combed the woods, and nearly any fallen object within five feet of the trail was cut to bits. Too bad they didn't happen along a bear taking a nap.
|"Still a little muddy here, pops..."|
|Back to Purdue: Bad enough they cut these logs up and leave the debris where it lay... here's the wrapper to a chain saw blade they couldn't be bothered to pick up.|
Meanwhile, we move on to Sunday morning...
|Breaking the ice for a drink at the duck pond...|
|"Made it this far without falling on-camera..."|
And up ahead, the tree that fell three years ago at the mouth of the ravine trail also gets cut up...
|Because, anybody would rather see a bunch of cut-up logs just laying there rather than a fallen tree in its natural state..|
|And, if you squint your eyes, a bunny!|
