A Day Hike

The Further That I Hike the Day Becomes Brighter.



The Cannon River runs through town.


I enjoy a journey in silence around town, 
and other places under the big sky.

It puts daily life on pause
so my inner thoughts can jog my imagination.


Perhaps the dragons in our lives 
are princesses who are only waiting
to see us act, just once, 
with beauty and courage. 
Perhaps everything that frightens us is,
 in its deepest essence
something helpless that wants our love.
Rainer Maria Rilke




Crossing over the Cannon River to downtown.





Shadow rings are out today.
Thank you sun.




Fences are made for those who cannot fly.
Elbert Hubbard



Seeing the city reflections in the backdrop of these window scenes
feels like a fairy tale in the making, doesn't it? 




City sidewalks offer such a keen sense to the soul. 
A place to come and go as you feel.




Balloons dance, by gentle breeze.




We dance around the ring and suppose
but the secret sits in the middle and knows.
Robert Frost


So what have I gained today?
Three of my favorite "things" that further my need 
for hiking about are

The Arts, History and Outdoors.

Thanks for your visit.
Take good care of you.

I like that you don't let the weather stop you doing things Karen, I'm the same. Also you remind me that it's been a while since we went on a hike, will have to change that 😉
