I'm standing where the fence is while Callie waits for me to take the picture.
You can see just beyond Callie that there's a clearing in the woods. Some years ago, storms toppled a bunch of trees that blocked the path down there. For a while we could duck under the tree trunks. Over time they settled to the ground and we had to climb over them. Then, last year, people came with chainsaws and removed the downed trees. They also cut down a whole lot more and stacked the wood. That left a good-sized clearing half-way down the hill. Already, however, new growth has started to fill it in.
