Uplands Farm in Cold Spring Harbor on Long Island

Uplands-Farm-in-Cold-Spring-Harbor-Autumn-2012

I haven't been hiking at the Uplands Farm Nature Sanctuary in ages so I was anxious to finally get over there last weekend to see how it fared after hurricane Sandy. What used to be a clearing surrounded by a canopy of sky high trees became impassable. Luckily we were able to hike around its perimeter enabling us to continue along the remainder of the trail. It was a beautiful day for a hike last Friday.

Definitely beautiful, despite the sad downed trees.

thanks ladies. I know, it is sad to see fallen trees but I should reassure you all by letting you know the woods are much more forgiving. other than cutting parts of the fallen trees just enough to clear the nature trail's paths, the trees are left in place for nature to take its normal course of action. & having hiked there over many years I can affirm there are many trees taking the place of the fallen ones.
