Re: Thought On Flintlock Season
That is such a great quote of Stevenson's, and it certainly captures the winter woods during flintlock season.
I sat, backed up against a knarly old chestnut oak this past week, and enjoyed the woodsy loam smell of the earth beneath the leaves I kicked back. With the smells came the winter woods sounds of downy woodpeckers and chickadees working their way through the overhead limbs. The only odor I missed was that "sweet" smell of fired black powder. Maybe this week.
