Arty here today to tell you about my recent hike along the Elk River Trail located about 4 miles from our house. It runs along the, you guessed it, Elk River.
The first part of the trail is paved, so Mama's feet didn't get muddy. As for me, well who wants to stay on the pavement when all the good smells are off to the side...am I right??
As we started our walk, we were surrounded by lovely redwoods and fir trees. Sometimes, the forest opened up and we could see lots of blue skies....
We walked a little bit further and were surrounded by trees, with only sunbeams shining through the dark forest to keep us company!
We took a little detour and found a bench by the river where I could
sit and listen to the water...
After a storm earlier this week, leaves blanketed the ground and even the river had a layer of leaves!
Some of the leaves were gigantic!
Almost as big as me!!
The forest is always so very peaceful and interesting
...It's not my ocean, but it's probably my next favorite place to be!
