Tree Huggers - GF

Unplug your phones,
disconnect you game devices
put down those game controllers
for just one hike.
Okay.
Yep, amusement parks rock, 
Lego Land builds imagination
while water-slides refresh 
 especially after Rock Climbing 
elevates us to higher places.

But there's something invigorating 
about interrupting a hike to embrace the moment.





Stop, look what we found!
Goes to show there's more to a hike
than just hiking!

..and gee whiz there's a fence for Theresa's Good Fences too!
Win! Win!



"When one tugs at a single thing in nature, 
he finds it attached to the rest of the world." 
John Muir



We found a tree, and somebody built a fence around it!



Look Grandma, I'm tall like a tree too!








"Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything is better."
Albert Einstein







"Everybody who's anybody longs to be a tree!"
Rita Dove





"In every walk with Nature one receives far more than he seeks."
 John Muir

Now that makes me happy to see someone care enough about a tree to not cut it down just to make way for a fence. You've got some cute grands!

Nicely done. And it raised a smile on a rather gloomy day in England. So thank you!

This is a great post. The tree is awesome. The fence is a surprise! The kids make it all very special, though. ❤
