If a Tree Falls in the Forest……

Prince George, BC- The Nechako River is flowing  high and fast   along the banks of Cottonwood Island park in Prince George.   One of the dangers associated with  that kind of flow  is the  undermining  of the bank  by the water.250News photographer, Stan Kuzma was in the park  when  yet another tree lost its footing to the fast flowing water.

The old question is “If a tree falls in the forest  and no one is there to hear it,  does it make a sound?”  Stan can’t answer that,  but  says there was a horrible  noise as  first the roots  were ripped from  what ground was left,  and a mighty roar when the  tree hit the water.

He had his camera ready,  and caught the action as the tree  succumbed to the powers of nature:








Cottonwood Island? Shouldn’t that be Island Cache? Is someone attempting to rewrite history?

Great serendipitous pictures.

As far as the sound thing goes, the definition of sound should answer the question. Sound is vibrations that travel through the air or another medium. In other words, pressure waves.

If they reach a person’s or animal’s ear, sound is heard.

Really??? Never woulda known……….

I lived in the ISLAND CACHE, not Cottonwood Island? Hey GoPG, how bout the definition of “Island”….
