Ghost Birch at Byers Lake
On out last trip to Byers Lake we hiked around the lake (about a four mile hike). At one point we came across a clump of mature birch trees. Wedged in between two of the trees was the remains of a third. Most of the wood from the third tree had rotted away and pretty much all that was left was the propped up bark–a ghost birch to haunt the woods.
Higher up (hanging between the two living trees) was another segment of the ghost birch–toothy splinters of wood pointing downward.
