For me I was a little surprised when we first got to Johnson’s Woods because it wasn’t necessarily what I had expected. One of the first things I noticed was that there was not very much wildlife around, except for the starlings when we first got off the bus and one grey squirrel that I saw. I was expecting to maybe see some more squirrels or even a few deer. This was surprising because I guess when I think about nature and the woods I also think about the animals that live in the environment. It also makes me wonder though if it was because it was so cold out that day and maybe if it would be different if I had visited when it was warmer.
The second thing that was surprising to me was the boardwalk path that looped around the woods. Usually when there are paths in nature areas they are just cleared paths of dirt. I think this boardwalk type path is helpful because it accessible for many different people and can help you stay on track so you don’t get lost, although the woods are not relatively big. I also was surprised by all of the fallen trees, as humans living in a city we are accustomed to as soon as a tree dies and falls down we have to clean it up to make the scenery pretty again but here the fallen trees remained. Overall I had a good time in the woods and would be interested in visiting them during either the spring or summer to see how it changes with the seasons.
