    Each year I like to go up into the mountains and see what I can find. It was mainly to take my family up for a Easter vacation but with the added benefit of hunting for stuff. I'm currently very happy with my collection and wasn't looking for anything but a pine of some sort. I took a ton of picture but I forgot to take pictures of the pine(pinus virginiana) so i'll update it tomorrow. here's just a slew of pics

    This was halfway up the mountain(thats a 50 degree incline) and up on this outcropping is where I got the pine I was looking for

    Only way was to climb up about 20 feet

    Some nice dead wood on pines 0417171405a.jpg 0417171409.jpg

    No idea what this was but it was by the river and would have been good to collect but I simply didn't have room in the car, NEXT YEAR!

    The pine I collected, has an awesome natural dead wood which the top will be connected down the road. Please excuse the yard I was on vacation for over a week and it needs weeded and Mowed
