Farewell chain link fence!

In creating a passageway from the Hubbell Gate to the junior high, we recently removed a whole lot of chain link fence. This is what it looked like before:

Here’s another view:

We created a large opening, bringing the apple trees into the garden.  Then we chose to replace the fence with something less industrial and two feet shorter.  First the fence came down.

And was replaced with this:

Once replaced, everything changed.  We now have an unobstructed view of Volcan Mountain, our beloved wilderness reserve, and the adjacent junior high. The junipers that seemed pinned back by the former high fence in the corner now seem like a neighboring forest. We can get to the apple trees to care for and harvest them.  It feels bigger, lighter, more friendly, and like it has always been there.
