Leaf, needles, and a forest.”


Hiking the trails within the National Parks, National Forest, and National Conservation Areas can produce a feeling of irrelevancy for whatever is going on in the world.

Standing motionless staring at enormous Ponderosa, Jeffery and Sugar Pine trees with Douglas, White, and Red Fir trees in the distance, within a forest of green blocking the sky from view.

The silence is golden yet broken, with unseen birds chirping in the trees above and my footsteps echoing the crunching of pine needles and leaves.

Nemophilist – One who is fond of forests or forest scenery; a haunter of the woods.

  1. Absolutely breathtaking with words bringing it to life. Nature has such a way of drawing us in. Love this. Tetons? Yes?

  2. When we lived in Europe, a lot of folks (then anyway) loved the forests and hiking too. And it is easy to see why. The beauty, tranquility, they all brings peace to our souls. Every day in the city we are bombarded with sounds, chatter…

    1. As a hike and backpacker I find so much beauty that touches my soul and I try to express my feeling through my writings and poetry. 🙂
