Just when you think it’s safe to go into the forest… — 8 Comments

  1. Glad to hear that Linda is OK. What an experience. There is an old saying that, “If it can happen, it will happen”–but no one knows where or when. We have seen many fallen trees on our hikes, but only saw one actually fall a few years ago just a dozen yards off the PCT going north.

  2. Wow, Linda is a lucky lady! That back wheel looks nasty!! It reminds me of a backpacking trip that I did in Yellowstone years ago with Ann and DIck. We were hiking through an area with smallish trees, probably 6-12 inches in diameter, but they were falling over all around us. It wasn’t a windy day and luckily none hit us, but it was also one of those weird, fluky things, Probably 3 or 4 trees fell very near or over the trail during our hike through the area. Good that Linda is safe!

  3. OMG!!!! What an experience! Lucky Lady! You should buy a Lotto Ticket it is your lucky time…So glad all is well and you get an new bike (or wheel)!

  4. I had a hard time to push “like” when I didn’t like what I saw! Glad you are ok.


  5. I heard Linda tell her story at the Friday evening get-together on the beach, and could hardly believe her incredible story! Your photos certainly confirm her narrow escape. Thanks for sharing! And it’s our luck to have both of you, who contribute so much to the Serene Lakes community, hale and sound.

  6. Glad to see that you are OK Linda. I wonder if the drought had affected the trees this way?
