The Sky Is Falling - Osgood River

Paddling the Osgood, which is in a boreal biome, I'd bet on how long some of the hanging trees had left. This one I gave 1 year and guarantee it falls at the first ice storm.

 

For those who feel these trees never fall near paddlers, I beg to differ. Last year while paddling Stoney Pond on a windy October day, I passed a tree not quite as overhanging as this. About 30 seconds later I heard a crash, turned around noticed a giant tree in the exact spot I was moments before.
