In life you have to take the good with the bad because you have no choice. Fine. In the forest, though, you should be able to put your foot down: no gross and scary stuff with the ground.
Even if it’s just because of the “wind,” this is against the rules.
This phenomenon, known as literally "breathing earth" was caught on video in the forests of Nova Scotia, by one (probably terrified) hiker. One who probably wanted to document their last moments on the planet, being that they were clearly in a horror movie, and wanted to leave something for their loved ones to find.
No thank you.
