Nature keeps things the way they should be. The old ATV track is there, where the hunters go in deer season, the tracks filled with clear water and fallen leaves. A ground beetle swims across a flooded rut. The water is clear and the untouched bottom is lined with last year's fallen leaves. The ferns push up from mossy beds and the trees stand in the wet places with water-soaked, mossy bottoms to their trunks. Some of them are still arched like bows from the ice storm of 1997. Deer tracks in a muddy spot are accompanied by miniature deer tracks.
