When the narrator reached the woods, he was thinking whether it would be right for him to stop there for watching the beauty of the woods for a while. He was somewhat afraid that the owner of the woods might see him stopping there. But in the end, he decided to stop there, as he reasoned that the owner lived in the village and hence won’t see him. So, in short, the dilemma was to stop or not to stop.
