When to Walk in the Woods
The winter morning is the time to see the woods and shrubs in their perfection, wearing their snowy and frosty dress. Even he who visits them half an hour after sunrise will have lost some of their most delicate and fleeting beauties.Thoreau, Journal (May 13, 1852):
They who do not walk in the woods in the rain never behold them in their freshest, most radiant and blooming beauty.
