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.

So do I, Gil! Some parts of the road were so changed that I had a hard time figuring out which previous pictures belonged with which current ones. The place will never look the same again; it will take decades before it is anything like so pretty as it once was. Such a loss, and for what???

Thanks, Wanda! I do wonder sometimes why "progress" seems to have to come at such a price.
