Back on the Trails

When Fall weather arrives, we are ready to hit the trails. Another one of my favorite things to do is to go hiking.

I love treasure hunting for artifacts on the trails and in the woods.

It’s especially fun to find hidden critters.

I think it’s magical to see all the different textures, colors and shapes hidden in plain sight in the woods.

  1. I love all your hiking photos, Terri! My family and I did some hiking this summer and other than the mosquitos, we really enjoyed it! I loved hunting for patterns in nature. And we found about a billion mushrooms in different colors and shapes. It was a lot of fun!

    1. Thanks Amanda. We tried going hiking in summer, but it’s too buggy in the woods. So it’s great to have Fall weather so we can hit the trails again. So many fun hidden treasures to find!

    1. Thank you! It turned out to be a beautiful day for our first hike of the season. This trail is less than one mile from our house, so we are lucky to be able to go there as often as possible.
