Of course this could not last forever. Just like the other cryptoforest this one was doomed eventually.
Early winter in 2011 the area was cleared. The weeds have been removed and the ground has been leveled. There are signs of electricity and drainage. Nothing spectacular is happening yet but the site is ready for the invasion.
|Looking east - with cryptoforest.|
|Looking east - without cryptoforest.|
|The dry weedy parts along the fence.|
|The weeds have been removed - civilization has entered.|
|A healthy green forest swaying in the wind.|
|Cleared area on the left - original pavement on the right.|
The last remains of the forest in the middle.
|Even in a dead cryptoforest people are still building huts.|
The urge is irresistible.
