Hiking trip photos
This past weekend my husband and I went on a little hiking excursion. We didn't have to drive far to reach the start of the trail. It wound down through dark woods to a small river that flows over beautiful primordial looking rocks. The clear water tumbled down small waterfalls. Rain sprinkled but we had rain jackets and I had an umbrella. Yeah, I'm a genuine hiker, carrying an umbrella.






Wild roses in full bloom grew along the path and the scent was amazing. It mixed nicely with the smell of pine needle and moldering leaves. Rock cliffs stretched up toward the sky on one side, carved by the water over millennia.




Other wildflowers grew near the water. Trout jumped from the surface a few times. Mist enshrouded the cliffs in the distance on the opposite side. We even found trees half cut down by beavers.

    Vonda - what absolutely breathtaking pictures. I'm sure you had a fabulous day. And, um, don't all genuine hikers carry umbrellas? ;-)
