Rock Cutting
Rock Cutting
Just how little soil there is in this heavily glaciated area is clearly shown in this rock cutting. It's little more than just a few millimetres sitting on top of the bedrock and gravels. Birch trees are taking hold above the cutting protected from grazing animals by the roadside fencing further back. Self seeding conifers are there too and left unchecked they will in time take over.
