Early spring in Christian County, KY
I went with Dennis this afternoon to haul some wood he had cut and split. He's been working on a huge hickory tree that Hurricane Isaac took down in September, 2008.
Now, two long sections of the tree's thick trunk are left. Dennis says that he probably won't cut and split much more of it because the slices of trunk are just too heavy to manhandle. He's going to look into selling the logs.
We stopped at the landowner's house for a few minutes. I took this photo of the view he enjoys, while he and Dennis were talking. The landowner is retired and he lives alone. He has a small herd of cattle, a horse, and a dog.
The tree Dennis has been cutting up is in the horse's pasture. The horse doesn't like the noisy chainsaw and log splitter, and he stays as far away as possible. The commotion doesn't bother the dog, though; he always comes down to say hello and see what's happening.
