Hope's Into the Woods

I used to love to walk in the woods on the Appalachian Trail by the Delaware Water Gap, or at the gorgeous Girl Scout Camp Hoover and in the Poconos.  I really enjoyed walking in those woods during the day.  At night I usually wasn't afraid because I was usually with friends.  But when I had to take my dog for a walk at night in the Poconos I was usually alone and it was scary because even with our strongest flashlight I couldn't see even a foot in front of me and I was always tripping on rocks and roots in the road.  I was basically afraid I'd fall and break a leg.  Not scared of what was out there with me.  Now, here in Florida, I am pretty much scared to walk in the woods any time of day.  The woods here are the creepy places, even behind my house I won't go into the woods.  The wildlife here is just plain scary.   Now if there were cute little raccoons instead of pythons and alligators I might venture into the woods.

Here's the deets:
