Joan finished a project Saturday, leaving me to hike out and about on m own.
I decided to drive up the road and see places I had not seen in a while.
Winter makes an excellent time to see the familiar and the popular. But with fewer people.
And it also means I can see things less known and often obscured a bit.
While in the “neighborhood,” I checked on another place I had not seen in a while.
The following day, Joan joined me for another local outing.
We again visited the familiar san crowds –
And Joan even did a balancing act near an aptly named rock.
From there, we wandered the valley on a cold winter day.
At times we want the simple pleasure of hiking locally, enjoying our “backyard,” and settling in for the winter’s night.
Thanks, Paul, for the beautiful photos! Wish we had such gorgeous places like this in the Northeast.
