Trail Being Paved Is Better After Rain

I’ve been doing more hiking this year as I search for my daily photos.  A few weeks back, we did a really nice park near our house.  Being with the favorite boy toy meant that we walked on the deer trail, not the paved trail.  In a few places, it was really mucky too and I was glad for my hiking shoes with their rubber soles.

Last weekend though it rained quite a lot.  I was hiking by myself, so I stuck to the paved trail and didn’t have to worry about my shoes getting sucked right off my feet!  Spring is definitely here – look at all that green.

Beyond The Next Curve

Beyond – Farther along or away; in addition; more.

My husband and I love to hike.  Some trails don’t seem to end and when we hike, we always wonder what is beyond the next curve, what is beyond the next hill.  When we hiked to Bond Falls in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, the path seemed to go on forever and after a while, it seemed that there was nothing more beyond the trees in front of me.  And then finally, we were at the falls. 

We stayed for several hours.  I wrote in my journal and watched the dragonflies.  I’d like to say I enjoyed listening to the water, but my husband spent the entire time talking with another pair of hikers that arrived shortly after we did.  I will never forget the feel of the sun on my face and the beauty of where we were.
