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.

early fall color

Most of the vegetation still looked very green, making the splashes of color really stand out.

We found some treasures here and there.

mushrooms on the forest floorWe also found lots of evidence the squirrels are very busy.

acorns and oak leavesI 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.
