Before finding the blue curls yesterday, I walked a bit of Gate 35, Old North Main Street in the disenfranchised former town of Dana, Massachusetts-one of the four towns flooded to create the Quabbin Reservoir. It’s one of my favorite hikes of the 52 or so Quabbin Gates which are mostly old dirt roads.
I’ve posted images from the shoreline here in the past and the occasional bit of driftwood. Yesterday one stump in particular grabbed my interest and there will be a couple of posts with different views.
It will be interesting in future visits to see if either of these colonizers is successful.
I especially like the warmth of the ruddy tone with the almost burnt look of the outer wood.
