I’m so glad that EW is again carrying “Outdoors” by my buddy Bill Sullivan. I’ve purchased some books and attended some lectures, so we’re buddies, OK? When Bill recommended a hike to the old growth forest at McGowan Creek, he was spot-on: It’s a beautiful short drive to moss-draped trees and the meandering burble of water surrendering to gravity. Being an old growth myself, I misread the directions and walked about two miles out of my way, but the day was glorious. Thanks, buddy, for the great trip tip.
