Preparing for winter

The trees are falling. This was a very big one, several hundred years old and the standing stump is a lot taller than I am. It must have been a big crash when it fell in a storm this fall. Those splinters are made for giants.
The mosses are shedding their spores.
The squirrels are getting the hickory nuts out of their husks.

All photos are from our walk this Friday at the Hutcheson Memorial Forest, a great little gem in NJ.
