After the rain finally went away we were itching to get out and be outdoors. After doing a few errands in town we headed to Sycamore Flats in Pisgah National Forest. The area has a huge picnic area that we often see from the other side of the river when we hike the Ecusta Trail. We weren’t up for much hiking this weekend due to my dislocated pinky toe (don’t ask) but we could at least do a little walking
We found buckeyes everywhere and being the good Ohioan I had to photograph them.
There are still some splashes of color in the flowers along the way and I always love to see the different varieties growing in the natural areas.
Of course the forest itself always draws me in. The trees, the textures, the smells and sounds – they all envelop me and make me feel that all is well in the world.
Hope you enjoyed your little walk through the woods with me today. Take some time to smell the air – fall is coming.
