    upload_2018-1-5_19-52-58.jpeg Three nights out in bitter cold. In spite of that, the *terrain was inviting and the experience invigorating. The only thing heard at night was the crackling of the stove in my Alaknak and cracking tree limbs in the frigid moonlight.

    Love the snow. Great pictures. Did you take your own fire wood?

    There is a ban on taking your own firewood in this neck of the woods. However, there is an abundance of wood supply and a lot of dead trees and branches close by. The creek was our water supply, a bit safer than the Eramosa. I didn't take any water from the spring - not sure why.

    I'll be showing other pics on another thread.

    Yes, they are trying to slow the spread of invasive species. They ask campers in the state parks here to only bring heat treated firewood, or purchase wood on site. I can understand that. North America is losing all its ash trees because of an invasive bug or fungus.

    ...the Mountain Pine Beetle effects pines and the invasive Emerald Ash borer does a job on other species. We just never know where Camping Babble threads will lead us.

    This is sad news because I wonder how the authorities can truly protect the forest against invasive species. This reminds me of the unknown bug that ravage the coconut farms here. The lady bug was the predator of the unknown bugs that they called Cocolisap so they tried to gather lady bugs to be placed in coconut plantations. But that process did not succeed. Fortunately one coconut farmer experimented and the cure was fertilizer. When the coconut is given fertilizer then it becomes strong and immune to the pest.
