    Dave, do you think these trees are 500 years old? I have seen some larger ones (girth) that I assumed were younger maybe 2-300 hundred based on some downed trees I have seen of similar size. Maybe it is hard to judge the size of the trees from this photo.

    I have a number of these puppies behind my camp on the lake. On a windy night I just pull up the covers and hope I am able to wake up in the morning! Always exciting!

    I came across a dead fawn near pine pond outside of Saranac Lake one fall. Its life ended when one of these fell on its back. I could barely see the deer parts sticking out of each side. What are the chances!
