Our cabin is in the Big Piney Woods. Up here in the frozen State of Winter it is supposed to be snowing and cold. Mom says things sure are strange this year because usually we have lots of snow. This year it all melted, what we had, and we are left with "a feeling of spring". My dad even cut down a tree with his big noisy scissors today. He is hammering on it (mom says splitting) and they will stack it in the woodshed for burning next winters.
I never go in the Big Piney Woods, even on a supervised walk. The trees are tall and there's lots of them. Deer, bear, moose and the occasional elks are out there, not to mention the coyotes and eagles that would get me.
