My Happy Place is in the Woods – All Kinds of Woods

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.

  1. 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 πŸ˜€

    • Thank you so much for your comment! We’re fortunate to have so many forests and woods of all types and sizes nearby. πŸ™‚

  2. 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! πŸ™‚

  3. 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.

  4. In this pandemic world, the fact that you can explore incredible nature like this so close to home is great – and beautiful photography!

  5. 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! πŸ™‚

  7. 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.
