Some steel cables were beside the trail. I saw some smaller cable further along.

It's very beautiful this rusty metal snake in the middle of the vegetation. I really like it.

Somehow the cable appears to belong in this lush landscape.

A very interesting image Steve. I wonder what these cables were used for.

@Shaun: They may have been choker cables used to haul logs to a landing where they were then loaded onto trucks.

Spot-on clarity captured in these cables to make them stand out against the foliage!!

At first it almost appeared to be some kind of fern or other plant. It seems to just belong there. The lush green foliage is gorgeous.
