Back Log and Pine Knot

Excerpt from Back Log and Pine Knot: A Chronicle of the Minnisink Hunting and Fishing Club Autumn has come again to our Mountain. Through the summer, the silent trees have skeltered the wild creatures of the woods and the birds which made the days joyous with chatter and song. The feathered songsters have gone and with them, the myriad creeping, crawling and winged insects that joined the drowsy night chorus. They, too, are still. The trees alone give forth soft whisperings, the voice of the woods. Every breath of the west wind awakens a rustle and murmur among the rugged oaks, the stately chestnuts, the gaunt pines and hemlocks. The spruces down in the swamp hiss as they sway in the caressing breezes. There is a tang in the air even when a hazy calm hangs over the swales and ridges. The lazy sun rises over the Lake, adding its golden touch to a picture upon which no color has been spared. Yellow, red, orange and purple are splashed on every grove and thicket. The slender white birch glistens in graceful columns along the banks of the dark streams. Only the evergreens have resisted. Even so their dark tops proclaim them and give them utterance no less pronounced than their gaudy neighbors. This is the season that bids us, unafraid, be out of doors. Out-of-doors! How weak and meaningless a term to express the glory and the wonder of mountain woods in the fall! Man builds him a shelter to shield his frail body against the sun, the rains and the wind, upon which all else that lives thrives and is happy. Forthwith, he divides all the earth into two parts: his little corner and that which is outside. But there are those who rebel. They who know that the sun is hot only to those who will not let its warmth touch them; who delight in the rough but friendly play of boisterous winds; -who bare their faces to the life-giving rains and go forth in search of wholesome adventure.
