I was surprised it was all paved with no one around. I was scared to go in it at first thinking it was just trees, bugs, and maybe homeless people. There was nothing no one no animals just a beautiful path that leads to the beautiful parking lot of my office. The beauty was hidden under lots of snow in the winter.
