Gleaned from the trail while on my “stretch my legs” hike up the Steep Hill and beyond.

This week has been a “red letter” one for me hiking up the Steep Hill. I made it to the top without stopping both times I hiked up the hill this week! It’s an 11% grade up to the top where my Lonely Tree is growing. See some trail images of the Steep hill here.

I think going up all those stairs last week while on the cruise ship paid off. 🙂

P52 27/52: Treasures from the Trail

Copyright © 2015 Deborah M. Zajac. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

My hike today turned into a treasure collecting hike. I found lots of trail glass in colors of green, brown, and clear, a little pebble, a little silver button, a penny gleaming off the trail in the bush; my pocket was getting full! Then on the way down I found these little acorns laying in the trail and had to scoop them up too. I carried them in the palm of hand more than a mile down the trail to my car.

When I got home I got out my tripod, Camera, and Speedlights and set about making some images of what I found.

I wasn’t planning to post twice today, but I suddenly realized I hadn’t posted my image for my Project 52 this week, so these found treasures that made me smile, lightened my heart, and made the hike even more joyful get that honor instead of the image of a rose with a bee that I meant to post yesterday.
