The time changes this weekend so it will soon be too dark to hike after work. Long hikes will be relegated to the weekends and I’ll have to find new ways to work in some exercise during the week.
So I went for a real quick hike last night at Old Man’s Cave in the Hocking Hills State Park. It was foggy till lunchtime yesterday but turned out to be a nice fall afternoon and evening. Plus, I almost had the place to myself.
I always think this tree, and others like it, is trying to walk away.
And this bridge is a favorite spot on a quiet day.
There are a lot of stairs on this particular trail, providing plenty of opportunities to give your heart a little jolt. This picture represents a fraction of the steps you climb to leave the gorge and head back to the parking lot. Stairs are fine but that curved wood and metal staircase agitates my fear of heights in the worst way.
The fresh air was good for me and I was grateful. This is your gentle reminder to grab at those opportunities to do what you enjoy as often as you can.
I have read that the Senate has voted to stop this time changing twice a year. The House is voting on it. Hopefully we will never have to change our clocks again.
Ir’s dark and cold here in Ohio so I don’t really care one way or another and that hour makes little difference. It is annoying listening to the people around me gripe so it would be nice to have that silenced. Haha.
Love that tree!
Me too. We have lots of them that look similar and I always stop and look.
Idyllic environment perfectly captured.
It’s even more beautiful in person.
So gorgeous! We’ll be getting some snow out in Colorado today. I hope it warms up and melts! I want a little more outdoor time before ski season!
Yes, it does seem a little early!
Beautiful pictures. And I hear ya, I’m trying to squeeze a lot of last minute walks in!
Thank you! And yes! We have to get out there and absorb as much of the fresh air and fall loveliness as possible!
