April 25, 2014 - Path Marker

Two huge rocks mark a path in The Brunswick Commons, a woodland area granted to the people by vote of the Pejepscot Proprietors in 1719.  The entire area is a rare pitch pine forest, delicate in nature and stunning in beauty.  But these particular rocks and those like it caught my eye.  How nice, I thought, and how understated.  No need for elaborate signs, check-in points, caretakers who charge money.  There's nothing like that here.  Just huge rocks marking paths.  It occurred to me that these rocks are a much better statement than fences and gates.  Much better at the end of a long driveway, I think, than a mailbox and a potted plant.  They last longer, too.
