Well, it's back to the salt mines (and the regular paychecks, yaaaaaaay!) next week, so I've been cramming in a lot of summer this week. Yesterday I cleaned at the rescue (Happy Fourth! Here's a litter scoop!) and I'll be back there tomorrow, and Friday I'll be trapping, but today I was off to Salt Springs to enjoy the day.
Salt Springs has old-growth hemlocks - A lot of them are in the three-hundred-year-old range, and the oldest one discovered there was over 600 years old.
