Fist Nature Walk

I recently took a leisurely stroll through the enchanting Belgrad Forest in Istanbul, specifically focusing on observing the fungi and other microbial wonders that inhabit this natural haven. Belgrad Forest is the most extensive forest in Istanbul with great views and small lakes. The weather was pleasantly mild, with a gentle breeze rustling through the trees and a hint of moisture. As I walked, I saw the numerous fungi that dotted the forest floor and clung to decaying logs. The damp conditions and decaying organic matter provided the perfect environment for these captivating organisms to thrive. I marveled at the variety of fungi I encountered during my exploration. There were elegant clusters of mushrooms, their caps displaying a mesmerizing range of colors, from vibrant reds to earthy browns. Delicate mushrooms adorned fallen logs, forming intricate patterns that seemed almost otherworldly. Some fungi displayed a velvety texture, while others appeared slimy or fibrous. Each one was a testament to the remarkable diversity of life that resides within the forest. As I continued my walk, I couldn't help but marvel at the intricate network of mycelium—the underground thread-like structures of fungi—that connected the forest floor. These mycelial networks, hidden from view, facilitate the exchange of nutrients and information between trees and other organisms, forming a complex web of life. My walk through the Belgrad Forest was a gentle reminder of the beauty and intricacy of the microbial world that often goes unnoticed. It rekindled my love for wandering through the woods, allowing me to appreciate the subtler aspects of nature and the interconnectedness of all living things. This walk was a great chance for me to escape the city and go on a walk with the knowledge of nature that we are living in. As I made my way back to the city, I couldn't help but carry a newfound appreciation for the hidden wonders that lie beneath our feet, patiently awaiting our curiosity and admiration.
