 A Place of Exceptional Beauty and Character

Picture yourself in a beautiful, quiet woods on a balmy mid-Spring morning.   The silence is broken by a chorus of nuthatches and chickadees, and the rustling of a gentle breeze in the trees above.   Below the forest canopy, exists a rich and diverse ecosystem consisting of beautiful wildflowers, ferns, shrubs and other plants - filling the gaps between fallen tree leaves - clinging to cracks in rocky outcrops that are covered by a lush blanket of mosses.  It is a visually appealing place.   You feel at peace with the world and alive, your worries left behind when you entered this realm.  The noise and commotion of traffic is barely audible in the distance.
