Sometimes an adventure, an exploration, can be so much more than that which is on the surface. A meditation, a recalibration. It's been a few years since exploring this trail, it's beautiful. Following the forest through scent is a curious approach and perhaps it was the freshness of the leaves mixed with the sun and warmth of the day that made it possible but it was pointed. The hay scented ferns (most amazing scent) lead to a hemlock - beech forest which eventually changed to sunbaked white pines that lead to the sweet scent of the maple dominant woods.
Sedges, rushes, snake, turtle, swallowtail, and tulip tree blossom. We're in that beautiful fine line between spring and summer.
Since 2015 we have been exploring and sharing all the amazing things we’ve found in nature.
