Have I ever mentioned to you how much I love hiking? My apologies if I’m repeating myself.
We met my parents at a state park this past weekend for a hike and a picnic.
The area was formed when the glaciers traveled through our part of the world, leaving behind rolling hills and kettles which look like big bowls in the landscape. They also left behind gorgeous scenery for hiking, from deciduous woods to prairies to tall pines.
The woods always smell so good to me, especially in fall.
These particular woods have 100-foot-tall pine trees, which seem so mysterious and peaceful in the same breath.
It was such a beautiful day. The kind of day you treasure this time of year because you know winter is just around the corner. Then I will be hiking in these woods with my snowshoes on!
Happy November to everyone. It’s my favorite month of the year for about 40-something reasons! wink wink
