Wood and Stone
As the trail system expands on the compound out in Caroline, new treasures are found, like this rock pile with a large ash tree growing next to it. Connie and Andy had been encouraging me to make some kind of sculpture, or "statement" as Connie put it. Knowing the ash will likely be dead soon from Emarald Ash Borer and how you're not supposed to move firewood to prevent spreading the borer infestation but it's going to get here someday no matter, I thought of constructing this Borer Protector, and if it fails and the tree dies, nobody will be moving it for quite awhile.
