A term that means visiting a forest for relaxation. Or a walk through the woods to aid in a person’s well being and serenity. And what better time of year for this idea of forest bathing, than fall.
The forests here in Vermont are finally undergoing their autumn changes. Warmer weather in September slowed the process. And some worried that the colors might be muted or the leaves would fall off too quickly once the cooler weather arrived.
But as I stroll through the forests near where I live, as I bathe in their colorful splendor, I know that nature is right on schedule.
Autumn is here. And the forest is displaying her extravagance, splashing the earth with her glorious hues.
It is truly the perfect time for forest bathing.
