Yes, we went hiking again today, and hubby didn't try to kill me this time! Today's trail would definitely qualify as easy. It was a trail around a lake that we like to kayak in. It was so beautiful. If you'd care to join me today, you'll need all your senses. I'm not skillful enough with a camera to begin to capture the beauty of fall in the woods, so today I tried to enjoy with all my senses.

When we took our break before we turned around, it was so incredibly still - just the whisper of wind in the leaves and a couple of birds calling out. I bit into a cool, crisp apple, but then I didn't even want to chew because it broke the stillness.
As we returned to the car, the shadows were getting very long, and there wasn't enough good light to get a good picture. Hubby was ahead of me, and suddenly he called out to me to hurry up! He'd found the best picture of the day, and so it was.
