I turned off the road onto a trail by the Yellow Rope Road. So named for the huge yellow rope hanging on the tree by the entrance to the trail. It was there when the land was first bought, back in the '70s, and when it finally rotted away it was replaced with a new yellow rope. I don't know how many times it has been replaced, and I am sure no one knows why there was a rope on that tree in the first place...
The trail goes deep into the woods
It widens into an avenue...
A fork in the trail, filled with bracken. I took the left fork...
The woods get denser, the trail narrows
Trail along the edge of the vault. If you step a foot to one side you can't see the trail at all, it just disappears in the trees.
Tiny red berries
Moss on a tree stump
Donuts, Cinnamon Rolls, and Pies
