A part of me wishes I lived closer to that place so I could explore it further, but most of me still loves my big hiking and nature parks with their wonderful forests. I think I feel the most at home inside a deep dark forest. Still, seeing all of these friendly animals that aren't afraid is a soothing sight to me.
It does all seem peaceful and calming but I still prefer wilder areas. It may seem a little more inviting to me personally if I knew this place didn't draw such huge crowds of people every day. I guess some people like to be around a lot of other people more than I do. My preference is to be alone more often.
It's just that my favorite places as a kid were where I could explore forests and hidden creeks. Now I get to do that again every day. It's like being able to regain some of my lost childhood. This is as good as a fountain of youth.
I guess it doesn't matter what kind of place you find, as long as it has some nature there. These are places where you can go and all your troubles just melt away. As adults we have all placed heavy burdens on our shoulders. It's nice to shrug them off for at least a little while sometimes.
