I don't. Not because I don't love it, but because we have lived here 13 years and I am better acquainted. It is wild and enchanting, but if it is paradise it is one with poisonous snakes, deadly spiders, ants that sting, leeches, and ticks. It is a place where you keep your eyes open.
This morning a few of us met with a man who is helping us regenerate the property. We met up for a walk to see what he has accomplished. Like many places in the world this apparently wild forest has been mistreated through ignorance. There is a huge problem with introduced weeds that take over from the native plants.
We have already planted over 10,000 native trees. It is a huge undertaking.
I don't go into the forest often, and seldom alone. People do go in, it isn't that dangerous, but I feel more relaxed when with other people. I enjoy it on its edges where we live.
