That's the idea, at least. I'm walking westward from New York City for nine months or so.
If everything goes according to plan, I'll be in Oregon when the clock runs out.
If nothing goes according to plan, maybe I'll end up in Peru or Mongolia or Pennsylvania.
You can read all about the details of my trip
if you're so inclined.
the old road is still there
Would that morning snack include some blackberries? ;-)
Wow, I guess nature will eventually reclaim everything, huh? Interesting.
ut oh…any apes looking alot like educated humans walking around…….anyone named Cornealous??
I’ll bet it was a great morning snack, and a nice piece of road to stand on while you eat them. Yum
More blackberries…. yum…. what a surprise!
I know where to go hunting blackberries, now.
Isn’t that something. What an interesting find and how fitting that you found it. Looks like an old road or an old bike path? Those blackberry bushes sure do take over don’t they.
Glad you took the (very short) side road…..looks like it rewarded you with blackberries! Not quite sure where you are but if you see signs of Collins Creek and Dog Creek, that is where Lewis and Clark camped. You actually are walking through a very historical part of Washington/Oregon!
Thorny bramble (like wild berries) are the first foliage to take over a deserted area. They are able to get a foothold in the cracks and they thrive in the sunshine. Eventually, once the soil is improved, trees start growing between the bushes. When the trees are tall enough, the shade kills the brambles. That’s how woods get started. Yes, I’m full of really mundane facts like that… Super Librarian!
Very interesting deb, not mundane at all. Seems like all we need to do to reforest parts of America is go plant thorny brambles, no? ;-)
Looks like you passed up the only visible part of the batcave. Missed opportunity. :0
