Certainly more cleared fields back then. Original settlers cleared the forests for farming, the kids left the area for the big city, fields were planted with trees....back to forest.  The story of many rural areas.

If today is your last run for the season, it looks like you had a beautiful day for it. Glad you didn't have to shovel. As usual, thanks for all the pics.                                         Whats your prediction on when you can get to your cabin by quad?
