These photographs were taken on April 14th and April 15th, 2018. I went for my daily backpacking on both mornings and saw how much more clearing the workers did on that area. I have a lot of memories of how that area looked before they devastated it, it was filled with various trees and plants now it’s just an open large dirt space. I can remember hiking through the different trails that led to different parts of the woods but now I wouldn’t want to hike through a bare plot of land. I remember seeing various species of birds flying from one tree branch to another and the birds singing to each other. The squirrels, chipmunks and rabbits scurrying about and the occasional deer running through the or the trees swaying back and forth from the wind but now there is no movement or sound coming from the empty field.
