happy hour

Cartecay River trail
The trail disappears into the woods, beckoning,
one must follow it to see where it goes,
what is around the next bend or over the next hill...

Cartecay River
The reward, sitting by a mountain river
just watching it go by... a peaceful way
to pass the time after work,
hiker's happy hour.

Everywhere is walking distance if you have the time. ~Steven Wright

Walking takes longer... than any other known form of locomotion except crawling. Thus it stretches time and prolongs life. Life is already too short to waste on speed. ~Edward Abbey

In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks. ~John Muir

The movement of water must be one of the most relaxing scenes on earth. Wonderful that you could enjoy it after that lovely, fern filled walk.

Susan: A late friend of mine used to absolutely love to sit on the beach at La Jolla, California. This post brought back many good memories of my friend! She was very happy! You seem happy too. Keep enjoying summertime! :)
