Saturday Hike

It is amazing the difference a month can make. Everything at Clear Creek is lush and green. I set out to hike 6 to 8 miles and ended up hiking a little over 10. It was a great morning to think and breath in the beauty.

This path runs along Clear Creek. It looks like paradise in the early morning.

This hawk posed for his picture. Others like the fox and blue herron were not so patient with me.

No, this isn't just a picture of a mud puddle. Here along the side of the road in this little patch of mud were countless whitetail deer prints. I don't why they were all right in this area. Perhaps the salt from the winter roads collected here?

This outcropping of sandstone is called Painted Rock and it is right along the side of the road.

Look closely and you will see the head of a whitetail peeking at me from behind a tree.

This Dogwood tree had snapped in half and it appeared to put all it's last efforts into the flowers. These flowers were very near the size of my hand.

A short video of my trip in the area. My camera man leaves much to be desired....add to that the fact that I dropped out of acting school and well...

  1. Hi, I'm RAnn and I'd like to invite you to participate in Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival. It is a successor to the Catholic Carnival run by Jay at Living Catholicism for many years. It is a way to share our best posts with the Catholic blogging community. Each week, I will create a Sunday Snippets post that includes Mr. Linky. If you want to participate, create a post on your blog highlighting your best post(s) of the week, and linking both to them and to the master post on my blog. Then, go to my blog and use Mr. Linky to link us to your post. This week's post is

    I have been asked by people who post infrequently if they can just use Mr. Linky to link directly to their featured post, without creating a Sunday Snippets post. Since one purpose of Sunday Snippets is for bloggers to share their posts with those who do not regularly read their blog, and to share their readers with other bloggers, if you choose to do that, please include a link to Sunday Snippets in your post. If you click on Luuk's name on this week's post, you'll see someone who does that.

    If you'd like a weekly reminder to participate, you may subscribe to our yahoogroup.
