The Woods Are Getting Bare

The woods are starting to look a little sparse these days, with many of the leaves fallen to the ground.

But it still feels good to be in the woods.

On a hike this time last year, my mom told me she appreciates trees when the leaves are all gone because you can see the architecture better. Such a cool way of looking at things.

I love to imagine what creatures are hiding out there, coming out only when all is quiet.

I love the earthy smells, the sound of the leaves crunching under my feet, the mystery of the hidden chirps in the undergrowth.

Even the woods are beautiful when they are bare. Hope you get a chance to soak up some fresh air this weekend too.

  • Thanks for sharing your beautiful hiking trail! Love the shoes:)

  • love the woods, wishin’ i was in maine

  • Your Mom is right – isn’t it cool to see the structure beneath the foliage. I can’t wait to get out into the woods again – we are kinda tied for the next 3 weeks until Willow is fully innoculated but then…… ahhhhhh 🙂

    I couldn’t agree more with how wonderful it is to breathe in the musky air of autumn and to hear the leaves rustling beneath your feet. Thanks for sharing your photos and your sentiments – it was a lovely way to start Sunday morning reading your post.

    I love that shot of your shoes and the leaves too!

  • Fun photos! Well, it snowed like crazy yesterday, and today I’m working 12 hours… luckily, I get to walk to work, so I got some fresh air this morning!

    I would love to go for a walk with you. I think we’d enjoy sharing a hike together!

  • I love the shoes and your hiking trail looks fun. I need to get out and enjoy my trails before we start getting snow.
