Now and Then

Sticky forest

time frame- now: when half of sticky has been cut down

time frame-then: before the trees were cut down

the endless dirt tracks weave their way down the hill as far as the eye can see. So many to choose from, every trail has its own story, its own crashes, and hours of hard work put in by the pioneers of Wanakas mountain bike scene. as I make my way down, my tires flick up the mixture soft moist dirt and bright green pine needles, us mountain bikers call this loam. It’s like a skiers powder, or a surfers perfect swell, and the old sticky forest was littered with pockets of this beautiful loam. The calm and quite whistle of fantails would welcome us
