Before the house hunting adventure overtook us, we still had our weekends free to enjoy the fall scenery and go hiking about.
Gosh I miss those days...
This mountain called our name on a Saturday afternoon, and away we went, just like that!
But the trail was still good exercise for us.
There was still plenty of color to be enjoyed.
And a wasp's nest! (Be sure to enlarge to see the whole structure better.)
Yes, it is worth looking up above you as you go. I had never seen one of these thing in real life before. Usually I see them in cartoons, with angry wasps chasing a hapless character such as Goofy.
How marvelous to see one in real life, and not have the wasps chasing me!
This was my first time using walking sticks. I caught on right away, and LOVE them.
(The next day I could feel it in my upper arms...isn't that great? That area is starting to need all the help that can be gotten.)
