On a sticky summer day, when it is too hot to do anything, Kayla suggests a forest bath. Daddy needs a little more convincing, but soon they are heading into the forest. They take in the sights, sounds, and smells of the natural world around them. Cinnamon fern and bunchberry grow in the shade. They breathe a symphony of scents, soil, sedge, and moss and find a stream with an icy current. As the worries and distractions of the day melt away, Kayla and her father relax and enjoy the pleasure of forest bathing and of being together.
