I love hiking where there is no trail, just traipsing through the forest. During the fall, after the rains start, it’s even more of a thrill to follow my nose and legs in search of the forest mushroom. It’s not as easy now living in a drier climate, and I certainly don’t get out as much. Still, I always find the hunt exciting. Maybe it’s some genetic thing left over from the days of needing to hunt for food. When not wondering, I can always just go to the forest and look.
