Birch Path 2016 / by Dave Hileman

This is a section of Acadia National Park in flux. The birch trees flourished after the big fire in the 1940's but now are being crowded out by larger, taller trees and the birches are dying in lots of places. But this field is not one of those places. They are thriving along the edge of this open meadow and make a wonderful path for almost a mile.
