Deb, Tucker and I took a walk today along the Banks-Vernonia trail, starting in Buxton, heading up the trail about 2 1/2 miles, enjoying a backpack lunch, and then returning along the same path to the trail head. Delightful walk! Couldn’t help but think about how I grew up in a small valley literally surrounded by the woods. Used to hike all over those hills, heavily wooded with oak, madrone, fir, spruce and the occasional pine. A place to let a boy’s imagination run where it would. Eddy Trout, too, grew up in such a wooded place but, alas, his recent adventures (in Trout Run) take him to the Big City, where he’s a bit of a fish out of water. Eddy’s got troubles that run to his deepest roots. Will the woods he loves help him find solutions?
