Woods Walk



Friday a good friend and myself went for a walk in the woods. I wanted to show him an area I'd come across a few years ago. It had been a while since I'd been there myself. Last year it was impossible to get in that area due to bridges being closed. Well, I supposed I could have bushwhacked ten miles or so. That didn't happen.

It took a while to find the place, but it was so beautiful out on the woods we didn't mind. However, eventually I found the area and we spent some time taking it all in.

When we started out that morning he had a bad back. My foot was bothering me. I'm seeing the doctor today in fact. After a few hours in the woods, we didn't feel bad at all. It certainly was well worth the effort and did much for our physical and mental health.

We'll be going back there soon too. In fact, we pretty much have to. Before leaving, we set up a game camera. Can't wait to see what sort of critters are running around out there.

  1. I always said that somehow, the woods always made a sort of sacred sense in a crazy world.

    1. When it comes down to it, we are natural creatures that need to be in nature.

  3. Funny how some spots we so easily hiked to a few years ago...might just as well be on the dark side of the Moon now.

  4. My grandson loves to explore the woods behind my house. Once saw the skull of some small animal up in a tree.

  5. My son has set up game cameras on our place. So far, he has gotten pictures of a mountain lion, a bobcat, foxes, deer, and a lot of coons. In fact one picture had a couple of dozen or more coons in it. Didn't know there was that much game on my place.
