   CONTINUITY AND CHANGE-1

     The view from here is a long one. Hill follows hill until they all fade into the misty distance. The forest that tumbles down the mountains is a young one in the eyes of Nature. It is the product of many things that happened to it in the past. Natural forces continue to work to produce change. As the new vegetation covers the scars made by man, one wave of growth sets the stage for another. Slowly the forest matures, and one kind of plant or animal replaces another in a natural cycle called succession.

     No matter how often you visit this scene, it will change very little. Succession takes slow, subtle steps and your lifetime is but a flashing moment in the long parade. In the meantime enjoy whatever is here now-the rich mixture of trees, shrubs, flowers and the drone of a thousand bugs.
