Fernucopia and Ferndog

Just one of the ways we made good of the anniversary of 9/11/01 …

This fern patch is in our “5-stump Skypatch.”  Skypatches at Balsamea are little openings in our dense woods.  This one is caused by the removal of a row of five large trees, by some selective logging done about ten years ago.  Our “Whitetail Way” trail goes through the length of this skypatch.
