Deciduous Forrest
The forest area near Lampson Falls has been created over many years of of the bank area that has been shaped by the winding Grass river. The forests haven’t changed much in the area for hundreds of years. The landscape was most influenced by glacial recession from the last ice age. This photo is neat because I have never seen a wood pecker or its markings all my life, and I still want to see one. Seeing its handiwork and the effect it has on a tree is quite neat.
