Today’s post is a bit image-heavy, simply because I had a really hard time choosing. A few months ago there was a really big storm that wreaked havoc on the mountain above my hometown. And then recently there was another. Since I was away for such a long time, today was the first time I was able to go on my usual hike and see the aftermath. What was once a beautifully dense forest (you can see some of it in this post), now is a terrible mess of uprooted trees, destroyed or blocked paths and bare hillcrests.
