Michele’s recent post about walking in the woods made me miss my own woodland path just a bit – the one that started IN my garden, the one I walked for 26 years. But then I looked around at the woods near me now and, as I boasted on the community blog I started up in my new town, noticed that they’re pretty great, too.
So here you have some scenes of the woodland path around Greenbelt Lake. It may not start ON my property but it starts just two blocks away. And it’s a LAKE, so it’s beautiful AND encourages people to be active around it and in the park adjacent to it. Also, the building of this lake created jobs during the Depression. (As did the building of the town itself., after which it provided low-cost housing for construction workers, veterans and others struggling to afford housing.)
Notice the ducks between the branches?
And a few blocks away I visited another wooded area in town for the fun-sounding Pumpkin Walk, and found it wonderful. There was food and ghost-story-telling, and a walk down the pumpkin-strewn path through the woods. It’s the woods at their most fun.
