This spot at the Reelfoot National Wildlife Refugee is one of my favorite places to stand and listen to silence, intertwined with the occasional sweet sounds of nature.
“In mid-wood silence, thus, how sweet to be,
Where all the noises, that on peace intrude
Come from the chittering cricket, bird, and bee,
Whose songs have charms to sweeten solitude.”

It’s like the emerald city in the country!
Nice comparison! It makes me smile. 🙂
Nice! A beautiful spot with so much going on.
Thanks, Ellen! There is something new to see each time we visit.
