The Water Woods.

We went to the Water Woods.You climb down these stairs and then walk through the forest.LP says bodies of water in nature ; lakes, streams, brooks, oceans and even puddles make her happy. Daddyman loves the mountains.The Water Woods has both elements so it is a wonderful place to be.

Can you see the water through the trees?

There are great big skunk cabbage leaves everywhere. Here are a few baby shoots hiding in a rock crevice. Bears are the only ones who will eat skunk cabbage. Even slugs won't touch it!

For a while you follow the path in the woods but soon there is no path just warm , earthy , soil.

The trees are tall.

The trees have great , gnarly roots.

Mountains surround us.

Water surrounds us.

We smell an intruder. Is it a bear ?

Hi. My name is Bear.

I hear something can you hear it ?

I hear it too.


Water in the woods.

Have a good day.

  1. wow, what a beautiful place! i wish i could go there... you guys are really lucky!

    oh, and Bear is cute! ;)

  2. Beautiful. You're lucky to live in a wonderful area like that. (What do you do about ticks?)

    Our mom grew up in Gaspé, Quebec, and so had mountains (not as big as yours!) and rivers too, plus the Atlantic Ocean. You just can't be that area, geographically--something for everyone.

  3. What a magical place to go for a walk - how beautiful it is.
