I’ve always loved the woods – all kinds of woods – from the dense forests of the national parks –
to smaller local woods where tiny bursts of light and color compete with green.
The woods have been my happy place, a refuge from the storm during a strange pandemic year – a place of solace, calm and beauty.
Inspired by Sunday Stills, Happy Place and Kinda Square.
oh these would be my happy place too. Such wonderful woods, and your squares are delightful.
Also very very happy to see you back part of the squares community 😀
Thank you so much for your comment! I’ll try to drop by more often! 🙂 🙂
That would be fabulous 😀
Oh my, Susanne, what wonderful woods you have here! Absolutely gorgeous and the pics make me happy too!
Thank you so much for your comment! We’re fortunate to have so many forests and woods of all types and sizes nearby. 🙂
What wonderful woodland shots. I’d be happy there too.
Thank you so much. I’m blessed to have so many woodlands and forests nearby! 🙂
We have local woodland too, which I love. But nothing as majestic as yours.
I live in Washington State – home to 3 National Parks. The first few pictures in my post are from Mt. Rainier National Park and Olympic National Park my two favorites.
You have a lot of great woods in Washington, that’s for sure. Did you ever read Bill Bryson’s ‘A Walk in the Woods?” A good book and a funny read.
Yes, Washington State is special with so many beautiful forests and woods of all kinds! I believe did read A Walk in the Woods but so long I don’t remember much about it! I’ve read some other books by him and agree with you, he is funny! 🙂
Yes, I’ve read several of his books and enjoyed all of them.
I always include the small local woodland area in my daily walks with Ollie. Then I sometimes drive to the larger coastal woodlands that fringe the beach. Nothing like the peace of a forest, as long as you don’t get lost!
Best wishes, Pete.
Yes, there’s something so peaceful about a walk in the woods. I haven’t gotten lost yet but that would be spooky for sure! 🙂
I once got badly lost in Epping Forest, just outside London.
I had to look it up.. Quite a mysterious looking forest.. Pretty scary after dark I imagine.. Glad you made it out!
Wow, beautiful woods!
Thanks so much! I’m glad you enjoyed them! 😊
Beautiful pictures! I do love a forest!
Thanks so much! Me too! 😊
In this pandemic world, the fact that you can explore incredible nature like this so close to home is great – and beautiful photography!
Thanks so much John! It’s a blessing to have so much wilderness nearby and very therapeutic!
Lovely! 🙂 🙂
Thank you so much! 😊
Thanks for sharing your beautiful images! We are fortunate here in the NW to live in the woodlands, both local and national forests. I don’t even think of living anywhere else. And they have been a comfort to us during this stressful time too.
Yes, we are really fortunate! There’s no better way to practice social distancing than in our beautiful woods! 🙂
Beautiful woods and photos! Looking at them I thought, they could be on a calendar! 😀
Aw thanks so much!! All from Washington my home! 😊
You could be making big bucks in the calendar and jigsaw puzzle market 👍😋

Gorgeous captures indeed 🙂
Thank you do much. 😊
Is that a pink lady slipper!? So cool
Thanks for stopping by. I think it’s a wild sweet pea. 🙂
Beautiful photos and woods being such intriguing places are our favs too! 🙂
Thanks so much for your comment! There’s definitely something special about the woods! 🙂
I so completely relate!
The woods are just there. It doesn’t care who you are, what you’ve done, nothing. It’s there. And you can learn more there than 12 years of school.
Yes, strong, beautiful and therapeutic! Thanks for your comment. 🙂
Almost every search I do, some of your posts come up. 👍
Good to know! 😊
