Maple is adorable. And just about the most efficient Trail Keeper you’ll ever meet. We use flagging tape a lot up on the trapline, but Maple still marks all our paths with his signature – three chopped marks. These marks are featured on many of the trees that line the main trail and our side trails. Even better? The person before us who maintained the line marked his trail with two chop marks, so as you hike the trail you’ll see the various stages of these marks in the trees – from fresh marks to ones that are at least 10 years old.
On Sunday I took pictures of the marks as Maple made them. It’s like a puzzle – ‘Find the Threes.’
Cheers and Love,
Maple and Me
