The trees aren't too densely packed where you stand. Not quite a clearing, the undergrowth is nonetheless manageable underfoot for at least a 120 ft. radius, a roughly egg-shaped patch surrounded by rougher foliage on all sides. You've been following a well-traveled game trail that cuts through the clearing lengthways, and you're closer to the end of the clearing ahead than behind.
The canopy is thick, creating a solid roof above your head between 20-30 ft. above the ground. Although many of the trees have lower branches, there isn't enough light in this particular region for them to grow healthy; although it hasn't rained during your journey so far, everything is tinged with damp, and fungi grow as prevalently as plants in between the spars patches of sunlight that filter their way down.
You find it difficult to judge Lena's weight, her clothes obscuring much of her figure. She's probably on the light side for a female human, but that's a rough guess at best.
