I went for a bike ride on a section of Military Ridge State Trail near my house for the first time this Fall season. It was exhilarating to be out there, cruising through the woods, wetlands and prairies.

On the Trail Again
We went for a hike Sunday afternoon on a trail that is only about a mile from our house. It’s a former railroad bed, so it’s nice and wide to accommodate all the hikers, runners and bikers in summer and snowmobilers, skiers and snowshoers in the winter.
We lucked out to have a gorgeous afternoon of sunshine and a breeze before it poured rain the rest of the evening.
Most of the vegetation still looked very green, making the splashes of color really stand out.
We found some treasures here and there.
We also found lots of evidence the squirrels are very busy.
I love all the hiking we get to do in Fall. Each hike is different every time, even if we do the same trail weekend after weekend. It’s like a treasure hunt finding different things, like plants or berries or fall color or animal tracks.
You know me, I’m always happy on the trail! It sure is great for my soul.
