Walking and Hiking Groups

“The people have learned not from books, But in the fields, in the wood, on the river bank.
Their teachers have been the birds themselves, when they Sang to them, the sun when it left a glow of crimson behind it at setting, the very trees and wild herbs.”
– Anton Chekhov, “A day in the country.”
