pines in the fall

The Pines here in Spokane are really beautiful and when the fall comes they make their presence known in a totally profound way. The dropping of the needles. I have never experienced this before. Massive amounts of needles everywhere. Manito Park has lots of pines and this is what it looked like in one of their parking lots after they had cleared the roads and paths. Amazing.
I wonder what you could do with all that fiber...?

Panos says that on Thasos when he was a kid they would slide down the hills that were covered in pine needles on old chairs - like skis. Because they're really really slippery. Sounds like a great way to break your arm!
