A walk in the woods

There's a path through the woods to the north of us that leads down into the river valley. I used to walk through there with Collette and then the route became a favorite afternoon walk with Callie. For the last few years, however, the path became overgrown with brush and brambles and we stopped going that way.

Tasha leads the way down the hill through the woods. At the bottom are some large wheat fields.

This past spring, however, someone (maybe the town) cleared the path and it's once again a pleasure to go down the hill and then back up (good exercise!) to home. It makes a nice change from our morning walks out through the vineyard. When it's hot out, the shady path stays cooler. And there are a couple loops at the bottom that we can take to vary the walk even more.


  1. That's wonderful. Like going back in time (which I suppose it is for you).

  2. What a great place for a dog and his human to call home.

  3. That's a beautiful picture. I love taking walks with Murphy in the woods. Life's simple pleasures are the best!

  4. mitch, a little bit. I missed those walks.

    melinda, she really likes it.

    bettyann, :)

    judy, it's nice because there are no vehicles to worry about (except the grain harvesters).

    michael, that's for sure!

  5. Lucky to have such as walk. I would do this daily for health's sake.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
