Why we love...

I've written about Clear Creek trail several times before, and I decided to show you why Chelsea and I enjoy walking there.
Like a dancer en pointe, Chelsea strains, standing on her short hind legs at the edge of the seat, stretching her body as long as she possibly can, wanting to catch every fragrance that is carried in the wind. Lest she fall out of the window, I hold onto her leash with my right hand.
From the bridge. I like the way that you can tell Fall is on its way by the fallen leaves. I watched from above.
I was convinced he was going to fall in and I was determined to capture it.

His arms flailed and circled like twin helicopter rotors, but he did not fall in.
She taunted "you are going to fall in!"
He made it all of the way across without falling in. I was amazed.
The entire length of the trail is 2.5 miles out and 2.5 back.
Edging the entire trail - many different varieties and colors.
In storage - to keep it dry.
I call this one "bales and lines."
Do you see the birds?
And back to the bridge. These evenings, I am struggling to finish before dark.
Now, you understand why we love to walk this beautiful farmland trail.

I have watched people walk on the top. I have always wanted to do that. Just a little scared. Great pics.

This is beautiful. I need to get out there sometime. I'm sure Mr. Luffy would love to get in some new smells. I love your pictures; they're very artistic!

These are terrific photos!
You need to enter some of them, like for the DNR publications.
