There is often something to see on Albany’s Cox Creek Path. On Sunday afternoon it was this dead tree that had crashed across the path.
This was a fairly tall tree, more than 100 feet I would guess, and about 30 inches in diameter in the section that lay across the pavement.
It was a cottonwood, if I’m not mistaken, and judging by the lack of bark it looked like it had been dead for years, just waiting for a strong wind to lay it down.
I don’t know when it did come down. On a bike ride, I saw it about 5:30 Sunday evening.
You can obviously climb over the trunk and lift your bike over. But if you can’t or don’t want to bother, better avoid the path until this obstacle is cleared away. (hh)
