“The mind can go in a thousand directions, but on this beautiful path, I walk in peace. With each step, the wind blows. With each step, a flower blooms.”
“Walk as if you are kissing the earth with your feet”
One of the best things about hiking this time of year is you get to see the woods come back to life literally right before your eyes after a long winter. If you are familiar with my blog, you know that I have a 2.7 mile hike in Fahnestock State Park that I enjoying doing when I don’t have much time but have the need to get out on the trail. In the last couple of weeks I have done this hike several times and the change I have witnessed is nothing short of remarkable!
This is why I hike!!!
The Appalachian Trail
When thru hikers go to cross route 301, they will see this sign.
A waterfall after almost three inches of rain four days ago.
Quite simply-a dandelion.
Compare this to other pictures from the hike a couple of weeks ago. What a difference!!!!
The weather forecast here in the Hudson Valley of NY is not good for the next several days. They are saying we could get several inches of rain from late tomorrow through Sunday. Knowing that I won’t be able to get out for a hike this weekend, I decided to take yet another trip to the Nose. As you know from previous posts, a hike to the Nose is never disappointing! Here is what it looks like in May.
