|Although I am not a hobbit.|
I love trees, even one tree at a time--I will be totally overwhelmed by thousands and huge ones and sweet-smelling ones, not to mention the waterfalls, mountains, and the Merced River. Whoa! what beauty! Will report back.
Here is information from online sources about the experience we anticipate.
In Japan, a forest bathing trip, called shinrin-yoku (森林浴) in Japanese, or sēnlínyù (森林浴) in Mandarin and sanlimyok (산림욕) in Korean, is a short, leisurely visit to a forest.
And then there is...
Ralph Waldo Emerson was the king of Waldeinsamkeit. It is the ineffable feeling of truly communing with nature. A walk alone in the woods will bring up feelings of Waldeinsamkeit.
|Not actually our tent, but will be similar!|
I think we will be also communicating with snow. We will be camping in a tent--it will be kind of chilly- so we'll see if this SoCal girl is at all like her pioneer ancestors from the Black Forest in Germany.
So, MzTeachuh and Educational Links will be back in about 10 days.
