Time To Wander In The Woods?

Since today is Election Day, I decided it was time for a mosey on one of my favorite trails along the Metolius River in Camp Sherman, Oregon. We can all do with a pause that refreshes given the past eighteen months.

Picked out five pictures I took the end of September to share the peace, quiet and beauty of a nice stroll through the woods along a fly fishing only river.

We started out late in the day and the golden light began to make an appearance. Smell the fresh air.

I love this simple path through the woods which runs alongside the river. It makes me calm down just by looking at it again.

The sound of the water moving along and the slight breeze of wind through the trees.

Now we are headed back to the trailhead, but I can’t resist looking behind me and snapping another picture as the light continues to fade.

So when life gets a little crazy I can dream about relaxing in the little gazebo in the campground on the other side of the river.   

This calming interlude brought to you by Mother Nature, the State of Oregon, the town of Camp Sherman and the U.S. Forest Service. Relax and enjoy the views!
