Approaching Cannibal Island

Posted by
Stephen Phillips (San Francisco, United States) on 26 October 2008 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

That small bridge up ahead will carry us over to Cannibal Island. If you look carefully - you will see that the power wires have been cut. Every pole for the past kilometer looks like this one - with wires hanging loose. The primary reason for power out here - so far as I can tell - is to electrify the pasture fences. We have an island just ahead. My guess is that someone figured out that an island doesn't need an electric fence.

Great eye - not sure I would have noticed the dangling power lines if you hadn't pointed them out. I see the sun finally came out for a bit on your drive. Love the blues and greens.
