A winter, nighttime walk through Bexley's Jeffrey Woods and around the sleeping Jeffrey Mansion never fails to provide a mysterious experience similar to the mystical land of Narnia in C.S. Lewis' book, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
Taking a night hike through this enchanted woods is as close as you may come to tumbling through the the book's magical wardrobe for a few unforgettable minutes.
"The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep."
- Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost
"I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape. Something waits beneath it: the whole story doesn't show."
- Andrew Wyeth
"Hold fast to dreams, for when dreams go
Life is a barren field frozen with snow."
- Langston Hughes
