Walk fast, walk slow

A nature walk is never the same for two people

April 27, 2014
BY JEFF?TOME - Special to the OBSERVER , Observer Today

You can walk the same trail at the same time with friends and family and still walk a completely different trail. Everyone brings something different with them. Some people have a nature toolkit in their head that is filled with birdsongs, wildflowers and identification skills. Others bring a head full of music that be-bops down the trail. Some people bring conflict and sadness to the woods to let nature wash the pain away. Many run through the woods quickly, for exercise, while others move slowly, jumping at the sound of every snapping twig. "Was that a bear? A cougar? Was that dangerous?" they panic.
