Hell’s Hollow at McConnell’s Mill

The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?

Quote for Week 3

Walking and talking are two very great pleasures, but it is a mistake to combine them. Our own noise blots out the sounds and silences of the outdoor world; … The only friend to walk with is one who so exactly shares your taste for each mood of the countryside that a glance, a halt, or at most a nudge, is enough to assure us that the pleasure is shared.

Was the map wrong?  Maps can be wrong.  But the experienced walker knows that the other explanation is more often true. C.S. Lewis  Poems, Pilgrim’s Problem
