We don’t have much in the way of woods around here, really. There is a stretch of wooded area just outside the city that serves as a park and watershed. It is lightly maintained, with volunteers who come through to make sure the trails are clear and cut up any trees that have fallen across said trails. Otherwise, things grow and die and nature intends. It’s a peaceful place, though it’s hard to get away from the traffic noise, as there’s a highway not too far away. Still, it’s quiet and there are plenty of animals living there and some nice views of the creek that runs through it all. I’m happy that it’s finally cool enough for me to venture over there again.
