“Stripping Branches”

“Snapshot Saturday”

A traditional woodsman trimming branches with a belt ax.
The belt ax stripped away the thin branches from a dead red cedar tree. With the “duck camp’s” rafters nearly complete, the next task was gathering fresh cedar boughs for the covering. Old Northwest Territory, four ridges east of the River Raisin, in the Year of our Lord, 1798.
