Happy Trails

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Happy Place.”

I often have a hard time dragging myself out of bed early in the morning, or pulling myself together enough to leave the house.  But man, is it worth it!  I can get lucky enough to watch the sun come up, walk through a neighborhood that’s not yet awake.

And I get the dirt trails mostly to myself.

There’s something so special about walking through a tunnel of old oak, pine, and redwood trees, or a maze of berry bushes and overgrown grapevines.  The cool morning air, the twittering of birds, the honking of geese passing overhead, the occasional sight of a deer or two.

It’s almost impossible for me to resist an unexplored trail, one that curves around a bend and leads off to who-knows-where.  When I reach a fork in the road, my only question is, “Which one shall I explore first?”

And if the path takes me over an old wooden bridge, that’s even better!

Off I go… I’ll see you when I get back!
