Our family took a two-week camping holiday this summer and enjoyed the forests of Maine, Vermont, and New Hampshire. Having grown-up in the northeastern US, we prefer to camp and hike amongst trees such as these and appreciate the efforts of the National Park Service and various state services in maintaining the parks and all of their amenities.

Sleeping in a tent amongst trees allows for different kinds of experiences. If they are long-needled pines, you get to hear gentle whispers with every breeze. If it rains, you enjoy the gentle dripping of water for hours after a storm has passed. Compared to camping in a desert or field, we far prefer wooded sites.

Of course forests provide much more than a place to sleep for us. Various critters often come calling during the night to see what they can find to eat, and sometimes we see them, other times hear them as they wander onto our site. Forests provide firewood (bought locally, to be sure, rather than cut or gathered at the campground). And they offer shade during the hot days of summer when camping and hiking nearby.
