The woods are often written as a place of escape from the real world, something not quite true in a way that even miles from any kind of civilization, you are never alone.
Whether it's the numerous wildlife who stop to watching you from above, beside, below.
Or the scuttling insects that spent their lives beneath the earth or hiding within crevices, a thousand unseen eyes watching.
Or maybe it's the unnerving sense that even though you should be the apex predator in there and that there should not be this almost palpable feeling of danger in the air.
The shadows that flicker out of sight just out of the corners of your eyes.
It is very easy to get lost in the woods, but don't worry. You are never alone.
