A Wooded Wonderland
Growing up in London, relishing in all that mother nature had to offer was a relatively rare experience. Of course there was the obligatory visit to Hyde Park in the summer (or London Fields for the east-London folk), but a three hour commute to work each day did not leave much time for outdoor frolicking.
London is considered to be one of the more greener major cities in Europe, with skyscrapers, busy high streets and council flats sitting snuggly next to rivers, parks and wooded areas. However, it took moving across the pond to really open up my eyes to a whole new world. I love the idea that I can go from cities to deserts, rainforests to mountain ranges all within one country. A country where a US driving license can act as a passport.
This weekend was spent exploring Taylor’s Falls - a river town surrounded by an area of forested bluffs and high cliffs. I’m glad I visited when I did, as I can already tell this place will be crawling with fanny-pack laden tourists come summer.
Until next time...
