This is the North Road entrance to the Kensington Lands. (That’s the federal government property between North Road and Whalebone.)
A while ago somebody started blocking this trail entrance a bit with sticks and a small log. One day they’d be there, next day they’d be moved aside. Rinse, lather, repeat.
I presume the person doing the blocking is trying to discourage dirt bike riders, who do sometimes zoom through the woods at an imprudent velocity, making all manner of noise; that is troubling to those who prefer a quiet forest and worry about children or dogs being squished by a zoomy motorised thing. And I presume somebody else doesn’t want the trail entrance blocked, so that second party shows up and clears it again.
Anyway. The other day the trail here was clear, but now look! The trail-blocker person has moved on to a log of serious weight, by toppling a section of log that has been standing upright here for years.
This blocking/unblocking back-and-forth amuses me more than it should. I can imagine what the two parties might say to each other if they were to meet:
No, my way!
