There’s always something magical about walking a path in the woods, you never know what’s up ahead. Beauty certainly!
Whenever I get a chance, I take my 11-year old son, Ian, to the Lake Jackson Indian Mounds here in Tallahassee, Florida. This is my own personal refuge from the “real” world. When I was little, our mom used to take us there for picnics. I’ve been taking Ian ever since he could walk. There’s nothing more soothing than walking in the woods, hearing nothing but birds chirping, squirrels scampering up the trees, leaves falling, and the gentle rhythm of the creek water running. Ahhhhhhhh. Serenity!
The challenge: post a photograph that means “carefree” to you. In this image, my son is walking along the path in the Lake Jackson Indian Mounds, which is my personal refuge from the world. Only the sound of birds, bees, insects, and the running creek. Ah, hiking in the woods – now that’s carefree to me.
