Woodland Magic

It is natural to notice when a muskrat is chasing quacking ducks on the pond in Menotomy Rocks Park, but the woods has a quieter energy. There is a lot going on, but it is easier to miss.

The trees with their roots wrapped around granite outcrops or buried beneath fallen leaves and mounding needles are the backbone here. Slanting sunlight can suddenly create all-embracing wonder and the woods in winter reminds us that resting nature adorned by snow and ice can be magical too.
