Unexpected Adventure: From My Point Of View

We’ve been there before, multiple times. 

A trail we never noticed peeked out from behind some trees & invited us in. 

Without thought – we proceed to have an adventure.

  1. Thank you for creating this post of appreciation for what is out there for us. Your pictures and quotes are inspiring!
    Just yesterday I was walking our hilly property for the exercise and when I returned, having taken much longer than necessary, I mentioned to my husband all the places we need to put benches. “Why, so you have more places to rest?”
    “No,” I said, “so we have more places to look up!”
