forest run 1:10:00 
When I arrived at the forest I was still thinking about what was happening in the world and at school. I want to start running, but I could not jump right into the woods because of the thick vegetation. I ran down the road for a few hundred meters and found a nice re-entrant to use as a pathway into the forest. It was a very open bit of forest with a few fallen trees, but it was okay to jump over them. To my right I could see the top of the ridge. There were thick trees and bushes up there. To my left the side of the re-entrant was clear and open. This re-entrant was about three hundred meters long, all of it was good for running. at the junction of it and the stream at the base of the valley, I crossed to reach the opposite side. This side was the flat part of the valley. I look down the valley and it was straight and open with mature trees. The afternoon light was shining on the green holly trees and the mountain laurel bushes. They were few and scattered across the valley floor. The green highlighted the gray tree trucks. The floor was covered by leaves, but with the light shining on them there was an echo of Autumn. I could see the gold and red left over from the fall season. Looking down the stream valley I saw the variety of colors and textures of the smooth green holly leaves, the jagged bark, and the bumpy browns reds and golds of the leaf ground cover.
I was now pre-occupied by the forest and by the time I returned to that pathway re-entrant I was bliss-ed out from the woods. Again, I drove home with the radio off, extending the silence of the out of doors.
