A Walk in the Woods

If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer. But if he spends his days as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is deemed an industrious and enterprising citizen.
--Henry David Thoreau

By the way... the title for today's post reminds me of Bill Bryson's excellent book about hiking the Appalachian Trail also entitled A Walk in the Woods.
