The Woods are my Escape
A week ago I was walking through the Mills River section of Pisgah Forest. I was hot, sweaty and dirty. The over grown grass on the trail made my legs itch and the constant threat of ticks and mosquitoes had me checking my legs every five minutes and swatting the air every five seconds. By the time I left the state park I was tired, hungry, and in need of a shower. And I couldn't wait to get back into the woods.
My whole life I've loved the outdoors. My grandparents have a cabin in the mountains and my younger summers were split between time spent there, and days spent at my cousins pool.

Today was finally the day I was going to go to the woods and adventure with some friends. I had been looking forward to this day since all the way from January.

“Finally your here” said Gary with a mad look. He was always the impatient one in our group. It was 3:50 pm and we had planned…
Kyle was gone, all they could see was a red line going down the car and into the woods and at that moment they knew Kyle was gone never to be seen again.
“They killed Kyle” Kenny said
“Those bastards” Stan added
After standing there for about 15 minutes Kenny turned…
Storing hardwood floor material in the garage makes sense in terms of storage space. It's a good place to get unused items out of the house without throwing them away. If homeowners viewed hardwood floor material storing from the material's perspective, the garage may or may not make sense depending on environmental conditions.
Temperature affects hardwood flooring's appearance. Specifically, moisture shrinks and/or expands wood from its normal appearance. Heat, cold air, and…
Through the woods, one can find many things: both expected and unexpected. However, there is a reason children are told never to play in the forest at night. This collection of trees and wildlife is dark, mysterious, and incredibly thick. The tall trees seem to radiate a sense of wonder, yes, but also terror. A place of mystery, this is by no means a place for children.
Suddenly, a young boy in a green cape breaks through the trees. He is being chased by unseen forces. Although they are never…

In “Stopping by the Woods on a snowy evening”, Robert Frost who is the author, constructs a hidden message of suicide throughout the poem. The narrator of the story takes a stroll through the woods, beside him is his horse and his slay. While he is attracted to the excellence of the forested areas, his horse shakes his harness bells to imply he must go home. The horse makes it known that he has commitments at home but that doesn’t pull him far from the charm of nature. On the other hand, is he…
I visited a maple syrup farm while I was home on the weekend and I decided to walk down a nearby trail as my tour guide had mentioned that they have ID tags on some of the tree species (I wanted to practice some tree ID). I arrived at the beginning of the Trillium Wood Trail at 13:43 and initially noticed the two signs which told visitors about the wildlife that is in the area, and to leave plant life be. This deciduous forest contained a wide variety of tree species such as sugar maple,…
