What a wonderful, puposeful path Belinda Mayer has created, complete with stairs to a campfire space!

"You’ve featured my garden twice before but I wanted to send in more pictures of my campfire area and the stairs going down to it. I live in Kinburn, Ontario just outside of Ottawa on a 4 acre treed property. It’s mostly hardwood including sugar maple, white pine, ash, elm, oak, fir, ironwood, and hickory. I recently finished my campfire pit just along the wood edge. I have a 10 minute trail through the woods that I walk every evening. For more photos, you can visit my Nature Bee Blog page"
