Nature Walk Friday

 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! 

Show us your nature! It can be flowers, your current weather, a scene out of your window, or maybe a picture from a vacation, walk or other journey! Any kind of nature picture will do! If you don't see a link below, click HERE  to go to our Hoppity Page.

  13. Hi Arty. Your forest trail looks a lot like where we go walking...well, used to go walking. Mommy is limiting me on outdoor adventures right now cause of mold and allergies. Blah. I miss them. Oh and she said to tell you how much she loves your new header by Miss Anne. Hey, Rosy, I didn't realize you are the only black dog in the pack...well, other than some black on Arty. We could be sisters! XOX Xena
