|The Bell Chalet is a Hurley, WI landmark.|
|Near the boat launch is the trailhead.|
|Typical trail terrain, it's an easy hike.|
|Around ever corner there's a fantastic view.|
|Lots of solitary sand beaches|
|Fall colors are just getting started|
|Hard to tell, but the trail skirts the beach in most places|
|Howdy to two of my most favorite people!|
|Another mile or two up the trail...|
|There is some terrain and vegetation variation|
|I sat down to take a rest here.|
|And that was Sylvania...|
I wandered through the famous Paulding Light location on the way home. Unfortunately in the daylight there was little mystery to be found.
I'll try to see if I can this last movie working right. I haven't been able to get my waterfall movies to work... but I will give this another try. On the Clark Lake Trail I heard this noise that sounded like a musical instrument... a badly tuned one, but strangely melodic. I left the trail searching for the source out of curiosity. I followed a ridge for a 100 yards or so and cam to this densely forested part of the forest. There were more singing noises!
Here's the first tree fall movie. Being an engineer I had to run an FFT on this noise... there's a lot of wind rush, I'm still working on trying to figure out a way to filter that. There were several of these falls in this one spot. Really unusual. It was pretty windy and they made a few different pitches. Standing right next to these trees one could put together the whole concept of a bow dragging across a string pretty easily. The vibrating sounds were pretty cool to see. I can see how legends of an enchanted forest could about. Really a neat experience. A have a few more, I'll put them up if I can figure this out.
The FFT shows a dominant 1.1 Khz which is sort of a high C note. From a distance these trees 'sing.'
Hmmm, I see there's something still not quite right with the upload. I'll try to figure it out!
The noise floor is pretty high, but you can see a dominant 1.1 kHz. That's a C6 or high C!
