The Perfect Walk

 

 

 

Usually I walk on the paths in my neighborhood and it's easy and quick and right outside my door. Sunday afternoon, I felt that I needed a change of scenery and headed in my car to my favorite nature park just a few miles away.

 

 

There are paths through tall banks of cattails along the edge of various natural ponds. You feel like you are very far from civilation, but every once in a while you catch a bit of traffic noise to remind you it's an illusion.

 

 

 

 

 

There are just beginning to be wild flowers blooming within the cattails, as well as pretty white blooms on the many lily pads in the ponds.

 

 

 

There are wooden bridges to wander across and also overlooks here and there to get a better view of the ponds. It is a relaxing place to be and I find looking for pretty shots to take, helps me focus on and appreciate the details all around me. The perfect place to walk on a pretty summer afternoon.

Happy Monday!
