Can't see the forest for the trees??!

So, last summer Gary and his dad started trying to thin the jungle that had grown up over the almost 20 years since my Dad had last done anything on the lot. Sometimes it was impossible even to walk through the brush and any "walk" to the river was an obstacle course of trees, brush, rocks, barbed wire and remnants of both the old homestead/barn and the building belonging to the logging companies in the days when the booms in the river below us caught the logs from the lumbering woods. The old stone "fence" you see here is actually the foundation of an old building. Unfortunately it sat smack-dab in the middle of the house site, and had to be dismantled, but with lots of grunt labour and some help from Keating's machinery we have saved most of the stones....
