Appalachian Trail Boreal Forest

"“Some men go through a forest and see no firewood” - English Proverb

One of my favorite parts of the Appalachian Trail are the Boreal Forest in the Northeastern United States.  They are located in formerly glaciated areas with severe winters with up to six months of temperatures averaging below freezing and relatively short summers.   Vegetation consist mainly of needleleaf, coniferous, trees consisting mainly of species of fur and spruce. 

Humor for the day - Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake were walking along the beach. Suddenly, Justin says, "Aww, Britney, look at the dead birdie."

Britney looks up at the sky and says, "Where?!"
