Woods and Water: Each spring, savor the beauty of nature


chipmunkWhat appeared to be void of life only several months ago now is bursting at its seams with newfound activity. Nature has begun another year with endless opportunities to take in the beauty of woods and water.

For two weeks in May, Lynn and I spent time at our mountain cabin, Deer Run, located in Lycoming County. We can attest to nature’s rebirth.

The mountains that make up the Allegheny chain of the Appalachians are now covered with endless canopies of new growth. Forests are dressed in a sea of green that had appeared naked and bare during the winter. Leaves of every shape now abound.
