Remembering the good things

The weather this weekend was glorious, and I had a chance to go hiking twice. Once in Allegheny State Park and once at Six Mile Park. It was a chance to remember that even though my mouth tastes like metal and food isn’t enjoyable, there are good things in life. I thought I’d share a few photos from the hikes to keep the good mood flowing a little longer, as the rains come back today.

We spent the night in a cabin near Allegany State Park and Allegheny National Forest.

We hiked down an old road through the woods. It was very foggy the night before so the grass was soaking wet and there were lots of little streams to cross over, most of which had log crossings.

I love pictures of my kids heading off into the woods.

And a couple of macro shots to end my photo tour of Allegany:

The next day we went creek walking at a park near our house. It’s probably our last chance to do so. While the air temperature was near 80 degrees, the water was cold.

Even the dog enjoyed our walks:

I’m feeling a little more refreshed mentally now that I’ve had a chance to spend some quality time in nature.
