A week and a half ago, the husband and I set out on a 6 mile hike through McConnell Mill. This was our second trip there this year. It such an easy and quick escape to nature that I am sure we will be visiting at least 3 more times before it gets cold again. Although, I might have to head up there in the snow for a Winter hike because I know it would be just as beautiful. Anyway, here are the rest of my photos I took while on our 6 mile hike. I never realized how big the park was until this day. We hope to explore the next half the trail on our next adventure.
^I am not sure if it is just me but I always have such an inner struggle with wanting to just take it all in or taking a photo. As we drove past a giant field of these wildflowers and I found myself fighting those conflicting thoughts. As we turned the bend and passed the field, I
shouted asked for the husband to stop so I could photograph them. Lucky for me, I have a very patient husband (even though he threatens me with "no camera" hikes).
^Look familiar? Even more beautiful surrounded by all of the green.
^I liked the spider webs.
^I was surprised how high we were once we got to the top.
^half way point.
^a little friend that startled me as he crossed our path.
^inside the covered bridge.
Our butts were definitely kicked after the hike. It pretty much took us all week to recover. I forget how far 6 miles really is and how much hiking up hills will take out of you. We had better build up if we ever hope to walk across the country one day:)
Do you have a favorite photo?
Do you have a hard time knowing when to take it all in or documenting it with a photo?
