two roads diverged in a wood…and i sat on a bench

Image

Saturday’s weather was just spectacular, with that subtle hint of Fall in the air.  I decided a nice walk in a park with a picnic lunch was in order.  I gathered Hayden up and we went off to Reservoir Park, a lovely spot.  I find that taking pictures often opens my eyes to the beauty around me, so you get to come along for this little jaunt, too!  (By the way, because I was too lazy in order to preserve their natural beauty, none of these photos were edited.)

Hmm, I wonder what naturally-occuring substance grew on this tree trunk?

I adore the glossy needles of long leaf pines.  Many a delightful bluegrass song has been written about these Carolina trees.

This picture just stumped me.

How much further, lady?

I suppose it’s time to leaf for now, but we will definitely revisit this beautiful spot again.
