My knees are so creaky now that the days of five hour walks are over, but I wouldn't say I got short-changed on the woods of Connecticut.
There are some magical places around here. But it's also true that some of our oldest and most-loved trails now seem to dive in and out of development. The experience of walking into deep deep woods, of going some place where you really can't hear even the faintest sound of a car in the distance is, in Connecticut, pretty rare.
Our guests today are going to talk about the joys and beauties of our woods, but also about the challenges they face.
What are forests for anyway? Who gets to use them and for what? What's the place of loud stupid recreational machines? (OK, maybe I'm showing a little bias there.) And is there an way to slow the march of development that gobbles up our woods? Is there any way, even, to get back a little of what we lost?
Today on the Colin McEnroe Show - how to love the woods and what you should do if you already do.
