Hot on the trail

Saturday morning, I went on a photo hike for the first time in months. It was Mojave Hot. I was grateful for what shade I did have, and for the water I remembered to bring.

I stayed away from the tourist-packed beaches, and instead took a ramble in the woods around Blackwater River State Park, my go-to favorite place. There were so many people on the river, that I didn’t have to share the trails with anyone.

The last shot in this series was taken as I shifted from the cool, shaded trail along the river, into the steamy, open trail that wended through the long needle pines.

It was a lovely, peaceful day. I needed this chance to recharge my internal batteries.

  5. Lovely. I am practically there with you enjoying the peace and tranquility with perhaps the occasional birdsong. Nothing like a walk in these kind of surroundings to recharge just about everything. Thank you for sharing.
