All so true! Strange that many of us are oblivious to what the forests do for our sense of well-being and that we need scientific studies to tell us they relieve stress. If we just stand still for a minute and breathe, we can feel our cortisol levels decreasing and peace suffusing our being. After we finally had rains here in northern California last week, and the smoke from the Camp wildfire dissipated, it was incredible to walk through trees along the shores of a local lake breathing the newly cleansed air and smelling the greenery.

Lovely! Come and visit the redwoods!

Love your photography. The last sentence is my favorite word. Wisconsin Public Television produced a 'Wisconsin Water From the Air' program you might want to watch. There are three water journey's over Wisconsin. The first journey takes us on the Wisconsin River route through the middle of the state (Wausau, where I live). The second journey takes us along the east side of Wisconsin, along the shore of Lake Michigan (a lot of Door County scenes). And the third journey takes us along the St. Croix/Mississippi River routes on the west side of the state (places I have yet to see). It is beautifully shot and has a nice soundtrack. Thought you might like to see it. Here is the link: https://www.pbs.org/video/wisconsin-water-from-the-air-nrv1ke

Thanks, Brent, and thanks for the link to the PBS piece on Wisconsin water. The photography is gorgeous. I could feel myself relaxing as I watched it--just to see all those beautiful lakes and streams. And there's so much more of Wisconsin I want to explore now--like the western edge.

thanks, Shoney. The redwoods are incredible. Can't wait to see them again.

Julene, glad to hear that you've had some cleansing rain. Amazing how we can appreciate those smells and sights again after something calamitous, like the fires.
