Take a Break

Most of us are starting to go a little Crazy by now. Some may have had a head start…no names mentioned!

So, let’s take a little stroll into nature and forget about the news, the ever changing predictions and our fears – for just a few moments.

This past Saturday, The Redhead and I took a ride out to Augusta Springs Wetlands Trail, part of the George Washington National Forest. It’s only about a 30 minute drive West from our “new house” and is along Route 42, Little Calf Pasture Highway, in Augusta County, VA.

There are several trails but, being that this was our first time, we chose the one that was more park-like with mostly level walking, yet offering ever-changing views. This Lower Loop is about .75 of a mile in length and has a numbers of viewing spots with benches. At one time there was a water bottling operation on the site, but that is long gone. All that remains are some stone ruins.

Ready to stroll? Let’s go, my friend.

One of a few ponds
Benches and information signs, describing the wildlife, birds and plants are along the way.
Spring colors are peeping through!
Boardwalk through the meadows. Animal trails can be seen if you look closely.
Water is low but the tadpoles were enjoying it.
Some Canadian Geese were nesting nearby.
Like most of us, it’s still standing after more than a few knocks!
Some of the bottling works ruins.

Now, that was a nice little stroll! Next time let’s bring some tea, sandwiches, a little treat and we’ll just set awhile. Hope to see you soon.

Pray, don’t worry, be kind.

Bill

    Thank you so much for sharing this! The urge to travel is rising me, and it’s hard being stuck in the house. It’s nice to see the world, even virtually.

      If we don’t get out of our houses and have some sense of normalcy, we’ll be much worse off than most who get this flue. Be careful, don’t be touchy-feely with too many people, wash your paws and…live!
      As always, Pray, be careful, be kind.

    Lovely, Bill! Thank you and Debbie for the walk in the wood lands of VA… I can almost smell the fresh air.
    Happy Easter!

    I have never looked forward to being outside everyday as I do now. Thanks for the views from a different locale. Beautiful!
