In case you missed part I: go here.
Looking back at these photos taken a month ago I realize that spring has really come, despite it still feeling a bit delayed. The flora has woken up and and begun its new growth for the year, at least some of it. Also while looking at these photos I remember the feeling of quiet and remoteness I felt while walking in the woods off the trail. I wondered how often anyone came this way, much less went off trail as we did, even if we only went just a little ways. It reminded me of some of the field projects I’d done in the past, where we’d just barrel through the woods where few humans really went. That’s where the good stuff is, where the nuances of life in the forest takes place.
I think I need to get back into the wild again soon.
