That was actually a pretty good movie, with Robert Redford and Nick Nolte. But for us, it wasn’t the misadventures while walking the Appalachian Trail. It was just a peaceful, late afternoon stroll along the Big Gunpowder Falls.
I always like checking out the bridges. Quite a few bandaids on it and should be rebuilt. This is where Harford Rd. crosses the Falls.
Here we have Molly not wanting to get her feet wet. This is crossing over Jenifer’s Branch. We did that hike once before so we stuck with the Gunpowder on this trip.
Can’t blame Molly for not wanting to get wet – the water was cold.
Even though it was cold, this little guy was reaching for the sun, trying to stay alive.
I don’t think this stuff ever dies.
Daily black and white. Some b/w make the day dreary looking. Our days hiking are always fun. We stay positive. And Kathy has shown me how to be aware of the goodness of the hike (as opposed to my just trudging through, seeing how many cool photos I can take, to post on FaceBook!!)
I now take the time to reflect on what I am seeing – to look across and up in the trees.
Just need to focus on what is around me, on that which is in front of me, on what is important. To be in the moment. Mindful Walking.
Kathy’s gift to the tree. Art in the park.
Our map of the trip. The one thing about AllTrails is, it shows how long you are out there while recording (over 2 hours) but when you save it, it only shows how long you were actually moving. Guess I better check the settings or will probably have to upgrade.
Great pictures. I always like the winter contrast of trees and sky.

Thanks. In the summer, while kayaking, I like a nice canopy of trees overhead. For hiking in the fall and winter, we enjoy being able to look through the bare trees and seeing things you don’t normally see. A lot of times we will do two trips – summer and winter, to see what we missed!

Ronald, I have a question for you about some information you have here in your blog related to the Jones falls, but can’t find an easy link to your email. Can you shoot me an email at email@example.com?
