When I went for a walk in early Spring, I had no idea that it would be October when I walked the trail again. Not only was this a wet summer but my favorite part of the trail was closed for construction.
A new subdivision is going up between the trail and where Mr. & Mrs. Christopher live. With all the heavy (and quite large) construction equipment in the area, they deemed it necessary to put up not only signs but fences to keep one off the trail.
Mr. & Mrs. C were happy when it opened again as it is the best kind of place to walk a dog. It is also my favorite place to just walk, canine companion or not. Hmmm... I would love to see Victoria with a collar and leash... but I digress.
Of course, since I had to stop and take photos and breath in the wonderful musty smell of October in the Midwest, I can't say there was any aerobic work accomplished. But my soul felt better.
Here are some photos from that walk.
The leaves out our way are just beginning to go into full color mode. Now if one were to drive a mile or two further into town, many of those trees are in full color. It is always like that. Every year.
