This is an area where there is a Red Pine planting. They come in and aerial spray it to keep the oaks, grass and deciduous from growing. Some of the chemicals they use are Accord, Accent and Garlon. It basically kills everything but the Pines and also works as a fertilizer.
Arrival at the cabin and a nice swim after.
I was going to ride home also, but being the Forth of July and in the evening, I accepted a ride.
