Winter Woods Walk

I took advantage of a sunny, mild morning the other day to take in the sights and sounds of some snowy woods not too far from where I live. It was beyond refreshing.

I love the outdoors and try to enjoy nature whenever I can, which isn’t always that often with the hustle and bustle of life. Whenever the opportunity presents itself I feel like I’ll regret it if I don’t get out there.

Here’s a look at some of what I found on this particular excursion into the forest…

It was such a peaceful and rejuvenating experience. Ahh.

Birds chirping, woodpeckers doing their thing, melting snow falling from the trees, and a breeze whispering through the trees every few minutes. Perfect.

I spent a few minutes just listening and looking…I really think everyone should do this every now and then. Like Ferris Bueller said, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

Take a minute and check out this video. Think of it as 60 seconds of serenity 🙂

It’s nothing flashy. Just a brief glimpse at something that no doubt exists in similar form very close to where you live or at least close enough that you could experience it without having to make too much of an effort.

It always amazes me how much there is to enjoy out there.

    Yes! That’s a point I try to make to people when I sense their frustration with winter. There is a lot to enjoy, that does not require a lot of effort to find!
