I tend to find both solace and exhilaration when I’m out in the woods. It is physically exciting as well as spiritually nurturing. I am frequently astounded by the beauty, sweetness, sometimes fierceness of nature. To be honest, I don’t always carry a camera with me, because often I’m also enjoying the feel of a trail, the effort of ascent, or my hands finding holds on boulders to scramble over or caves to crawl through. The woods are a favorite place of mine.
