Walk With Me Wednesday

The weather last Sunday was not ideal for getting out, it was raw and cloudy. And we went for a walk anyway. First, because it gives me blog fodder. Second, because it’s good to get moving. Third, because we’re enjoying finding new places to go together.

Dale suggested a portion of the rail trail in the next town over and I agreed readily. He’s actually done this walk many times while hunting but it was the first time for me.

I was fascinated by this tree. I think it’s a beech tree and all of those knots are amazing. Maybe a little creepy, too? Definitely cool. Not cool was the sofa that someone had dumped next to it.

Not surprisingly, there were cairns. I think we see these more often than not and I love the reminder that someone else walked here . . . someone who took the time to gather stones and pile them up . . . someone who is saying hello . . . look at this and be present.

In this week of amplifying gratitude, I am grateful for these walks with Dale.

  1. I’m grateful that you take the time to photo things like this walk and share them with us. Especially in this time of staying at home, it’s lovely to armchair travel.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. We are big fans of rail trails. Usually for riding not walking but this one is lovely. Where is it? Do you know how long it is?

  3. Ooooooh, that first picture just pulls you in. This looks like so much fun, so relaxing, I love the cairns! And, yes, that tree is a bit creepy, but very intriguing. Thanks for sharing these shots with me, Carole.

  4. I love following a trail with cairn indicators! To think they could have been there in place, just to let you know you’re on the right path, for a generation or more. The golden carpet of your trial is especially rich and exciting to follow. Thank you for taking us along today.
