Road Destruction

Westfield, NC (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: That's not what the sign said, but it might as well have. I was shocked to see one of my favorite drives desecrated, with many trees cut down. All I can figure is that the unpaved part of this road is being widened in preparation for being paved, which is really not necessary, as it is already as wide as the paved sections. I'll never understand the thinking of people who cut down trees 'because they are there,' when it is so unnecessary. The wood does not even have much commercial value.

Thanks, Cynthia! The only comfort is, there is a clearer view of Sauratown, Hanging Rock, and Pilot Mountain now than there was. It will be decades before the trees grow back, and then only if they are allowed to.

That is too bad. It is a pretty distant view.

Compare to my photo of the same place, taken last year on October 29. Note where the pavement ends; I had to resort to such landmarks even to be sure I had the same stretch of road; it was so very changed I could not always recognize where I was.
