Larch Plantation

A quick dash out before the forecasted rains came. Larch plantations are usually dark, dense places, hands and knees jobs with needles creeping down your back. This one on Ryston Bank, on the western end of Hutton Woods, has a network of mountain bikes through which to explore. Larch is one of the few conifers that are deciduous and drop their needles for the winter covering the forest floor in an orange carpet.
