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.
