We have had a lot of rain these past couple of weeks, but I was able to get out and get some pictures before many of the trees lost their leaves.

Making my way through the woods on a sunny day with a breeze softly blowing and leaves gently floating and dancing to the ground, I look around me in awe and relish every moment, not wanting this walk to end!
