Into the forest

Ten minutes from our home and right off a busy road we use often is a very small parking area and a wide trail canopied in trees visible from the road. I've been noticing this trail becoming more golden each time we drove past.
With yesterday's cloudless sky and warm fall weather, it was the perfect day to go for a walk before heading to swimming classes and playground play.
I do not know why a plastic Bob the Builder Hammer was needed on this trip, but it made several appearances in our outing, including a Statue of Liberty pose.
We also heard a woodpecker a couple of times, but could not find the tree being pecked, likely because the suspected trees were towering so high over us and the leaf canopy provided much shelter. Seth had the idea to hug the tree we thought it was to see if he could feel the vibrations, but by then, the woodpecker had stopped his business, so general hilarity resumed.


  1. I'm pretty sure I've never been in a forest like this in autumn - it seems like another world to me, a fairytale world! So gorgeous... I can only imagine the smell of the leaves turning color, and the cathedral-like height. I also love the shot of your son jumping from behind a tree. :-) Thank you!

  2. gasp! SO beautiful, Heather. I just love it. That tunnel through the trees is so inviting, and the blue of the sky, too? So lovely. Thank you for sharing!
