The Barrens, Mt. Uniacke, acrylic on canvas, 4' x 4'
The parklands of the Mount Uniacke Estate include trails through Acadian forest, wetlands and the barrens. The trails wind through woodlands, sometimes with deep undergrowth. However, along the Barrens Trail the woods are dominated by red spruce. The survivors reach above the unsuccessful fallen trees whose trunks and branches create a pattern of white bones across the forest floor.
