The area shown in this photo was logged during the summer of 1998 and replanted during February of 1999. The photo shows the same area as it looked in the early morning hours of May 6, 2003, just five years following replanting.
This photo shows the same area as seen from the same vantage point but on November 16, 2007, eight years following replanting. The majority of the trees are greater than fifteen feet in height. In another three years, the view from this vantage point will be totally obscured!
If you want to see a really impressive example of the progression of time, visit the Bike Riding Donut Guy’s blog and view what he calls “The Front Door Pictures”. These photos depict his son and daughter as they appeared annually on their birthday. Pretty neat stuff!
