Inspiration From the Weekly Hike

Ha, well, maybe not so weekly this summer.  My hiking partner and I have both been traveling and I have been ill on occasion, always because of my lungs, now I have pneumonia and probably I won’t hike again this Wednesday, but I really miss the hike and the renewal I feel each time I do it.  Even though this is a hot time of the year, the mornings have been cool and cloudy and would have made great hiking weather.

Someone took the time to build a lovely little cairn. They also took the time to fill the little trail with lots of rocks and sticks and logs...so bike riders can't take the trail anymore? Not sure.

I love the little tableau of rocks and leaves that this moth has landed among. Had he landed a few inches over, he would have been completely camouflaged.

I even find inspiration in the vegetation that is sending it's puffy seeds into the air, helped by the breeze.
