The Cryptoscenti

It began with a pleasant walk in the woods. A tree fell in the forest right in front of me, right at a woodland edge, which instantly transitioned onto a vast open scrub, with weeds and brush almost as tall as a man, presenting no trees as far as the eye could see. I continued to wander out, farther and further into the dense brush. This was simply an exploration, and I brought no weapons, nor even a compass. I suppose I just enjoy doing things people are not supposed to do.
