Hooray for Forest

We went into the forest on a very hot day looking for shade.
No rain of significance for three and a half months. Most green areas are withered and yellow.
To my surprise we found pleasant coolness and green lushness.
A fresh breeze came in on top of Fruebjerg and gave impression of being close to the sea, although the sea is about twenty kilometers away.

  1. Must have been wonderfully refreshing! The same dryness here, and longing for lushness.

  2. I had the same experience hiking through a wooden area in the Taunus Mountains. I was amazed to see green grass again and feel the coolness on my skin.

    • Thanks a lot, George. I hadn’t imagined Scandinavia being affected by drought, as has happened this year. It was a comfort to visit the big old forest and experience lushness again.
