Yes, I am fortunate. I have hiked the Adarondeck climax forests of up state New York, the giant redwoods of CA and most recently the Bristle cone pine forest. I have always liked the out of doors. I spent hours as a child in the woods near my home in Grant City. When I was older explored the swamps between Jefferson Avenue and Dongan Hills trapping muskrats in the winter and catching frogs and snapping turtles in the summer. Great adventures for a youngster. My memories of the SI where I grew up will probably keep me from returning as all of those special places are probably now developed beyond recognition (:>(
