What's Happened to the Bosque?
A short walk on a spring afternoon, and I was shocked and saddened beyond words at the recent clear-cutting and scraping of all "non-native" species from our beloved bosque.
In the name of "safety" and "conservation" this insulting attack has been sustained against all the undergrowth, all the little trees, all the hiding places and the quiet, private trails...it is all gone. You can drive a semi through the woods, nothing but chipped wood, stumps, and silence.
See for yourself.
