I've grown to love these little brown signs. I see the hikers and know that a pleasant journey is just ahead of me. Through the woods, beside a river...whatever nature has in store, whatever the season, I've learned that I won't be disappointed by all that there is to discover along the trail.
As we walked back down this trail last weekend, I noticed these small rocks that someone had balanced atop a larger boulder in the midst of the rushing water. I snapped a photo because I thought... this is how these walks make me feel. My feet take my body AND my soul on a journey when I hike. Not only am I physically strengthened and rewarded, but my inner self seems led out of the faster pace of a life rushing on by and towards peace and balance.
Truth be told, it's this inner journey that draws me back to the woods over and over again.
