Looking West

Reading of The Nature Fix continues, and the usefulness of being in the outdoors, in the woods especially, becomes more clear as the book progresses.  In the second chapter, Ms. Williams gets into some of the science and theories that are used to understand and explain the value of forest bathing.  What was anecdotal becomes increasingly verifiable, although there are a number of variables to be further tested.

As there was a nice break from the rain this past Sunday, it was a good time to go to South Mountain and walk a (small) bit of the Appalachian Trail, which moves through Washington Monument State Park.  The photographs here are from atop the mountain looking west-the first near the monument itself; the second on the slope away from the crest.  The air was crisp, the sun was shining, and it was a pleasure to soak in the outdoors.

Take care.
