I must confess that I am increasingly puzzled by the number of fences I come across with posts every two feet or less. Initially I put it down to bedrock near the surface, necessitating frequent but shallowly rooted fenceposts. But sometimes it seems like all fences around here are built like this. Has anyone else come across such fences frequently?
These fences are along the road where one of the barns I shared photos of yesterday is found - it's just to the right of this picture. A major winter snowmobile route crosses this photo, just this side of those trees - but not enough snow yet for anyone to get out.
Many of these posts are less that 2 feet apart. An awful lot of work to go to!
They do always look better in a picture when shot at a long angle with a bit of a telephoto lens.
Down in the lowest part of this valley, where the cedars hug the road, flows Wodehouse Creek, the fascinating karst creek that flows into a sinkhole. I've written about it before, and will do so again. I think I'm going to start to keep track of how many fences I see like this, and find out what the story behind them is.
