Happy trails

"Hobbit trail", "Oregon coast", "photo impressionism", hecetaThe beckoning pathHeceta Head, Oregon. Photo impressionism.

Walk away quietly in any direction and taste the freedom of the mountaineer... Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. As age comes on, one source of enjoyment after another is closed, but nature's sources never fail.  - John Muir

Today is National Trails Day.  Time to get outside and tread gently on this Good Earth. Feel a breeze on your cheek, and maybe get a little bounce back in your step.  It’s good to be reminded of all that Mother Nature gives us - and to remind ourselves not to squander those gifts.

This enticing trail is in the woods of Heceta Head on the Oregon Coast (added a hint of photo impressionism for a dreamy feel).
