My husband and I have been working on trails in the woods surrounding our house. So, I’ve been hiking and drawing what I see.

For the last couple of days I’ve renewed my interest in our trails. The Japanese call it forest bathing or Shinrin Yoku. It’s healing to be out in nature, to walk along forest trails, to observe and become one with the earth. I do believe what they say, “Location, location, location is true.” My location isContinue reading “Forest Bathing”
This summer we were out in the woods, and my husband was trimming branches along our trails.
Magic Mushrooms and Other Marvels of the Forest
A couple of days ago I saw my first blue mushroom in the woods. I’ve been walking the trails for a decade and this was a first, maybe a sign of some sort. I believe it is known as an indigo milk cap. Today, out on the trail, I saw more. And, here wasContinue reading “Magic Mushrooms and Other Marvels of the Forest”
Sidetracked by Summer
I tend to become missing in action from the world of blogging at times, particularly in times when the great outdoors calls. In most instances it is just my backyard calling. On nice days I even move my yoga mat outside to the grass. But today it is raining. I have been taking pictures intermittentlyContinue reading “Sidetracked by Summer”
A Step into Nature and What is Natural
Saturday was clean up day for our county. So, we took advantage by doing some clean up around here. A friend brought over a trailer, and my husband and he worked together on both our place and his. There were people at the unloading spot to take advantage of other people’s discarded stuff. I’m notContinue reading “A Step into Nature and What is Natural”
Baby, It’s Cold Outside
Only 12 degrees according to the weather report, which means it is probably about 5 degrees colder here since we are in a higher elevation area. We don’t have a thermometer outside anymore but it always registered about 5 degrees colder here. These pictures are from a hike on the farm on January 18, 2009.Continue reading “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”
In January of 2008, Chris and I hiked two trails at Carter Caves State Park in Kentucky. A friend and I were supposed to hike Carter Caves today, but we got rained out. We hiked the Raven Bridge Trail, which is 0.7 miles in length, and the Three Bridges Trail which is 3.5 miles inContinue reading “Trails”
Building Hiking Trails
Yesterday I was out hiking and working on the trails around our house. Several years ago I started hiking for several reasons, to correct some knee problems (it worked), to lose extra pounds (it worked), and to be inspired by nature (it is still working). I began hiking at a nearby state park, Carter Caves.Continue reading “Building Hiking Trails”
On Saturday, we worked on trails in the woods around our house. As soon as warm enough weather sets in I get out on the trails to do the pre-spring upkeep. Mainly that consists of raking leaves off the path, picking up rocks and wind-blown sticks. My husband does the heavier work of cutting upContinue reading “Mother Earth”
