It may be a hundred degrees under the sun, but under the canopy of the woods, things are just a bit more comfortable. The surrounding sights, sounds, and smells help one forget the oppressive mid-summer heat. Of course, depending on one's location, a road trip to a local or state park might be in order. But, it is definitely worth it. This week on Wind & Rhythm, we wander through the woods, enjoying all that they have to offer.
