Forest Gate

IMG_9412

During a long drive on the countryside of Kodaikanal, we stopped for mild refreshment and find this two pole gate making way through eucalyptus trees in the forest area.

This is one of the many forest gates on way the to Mannavanur from Kodaikanal and these jeep tracks are open for only forest officials to patrol. Once crossed the Kodaikanal town, its woods and forest take away the scenario and this area is often sighted with bison (Indian gaur).

It looks like the gate is attached to the trees.

The Indian Gaur is a very large animal. A lot of muscle. Your forest must be great places for you to visit. I assume it is a higher weter altitude in which they grow.

I love to walk through the woods. It's so peaceful, but I understand why they want to keep people out. Such a beautiful place. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Gate to the Forest is a great way to describe your photo.... I assume the gate is there to protect the forest/environment and to keep HUMANS out!!!! Neat.... Humans do so much to destroy nature.

Looks like a great drive in the country.....

Hugs,
Betsy
