Cool, strange and curious finds


Almost everyone loves the occasional walk in the forest. For the athletic types, for the adventurous types, the romantic types – it seems the forest has something to offer, to everyone. To the curious type of people as well. Those who like to explore, and the like. Forests have a lot to offer to them. Their vastness, the fact that, while they are frequently visited, they are not part of folks’ everyday lives routes. So a lot of things go unnoticed, or hidden in the woods.

Here is a list, of those things. Things that people stumbled upon, in a forest, and they were deemed so cool, strange or curious that they just had to share with the rest of us. We are glad they did.

Enjoy. Tell us which is your favorite. And share with us, your forest finds, stories or photos. Cheers.
