Reflections along the path. Chattahoochee Bend State Park

Reflections along the path. Chattahoochee Bend State ParkA glint of azure tinged with green
That beckons from the dark ravine,
The forest reveals its hidden jewel
A softly trembling shimmering pool!

We all know the old saying that you “can’t see the forest for the trees,” and we rarely apply it literally.

But as an avid hiker and naturalist, I have learned to keep an open eye along the trail for any nuance of nature that could easily be bypassed without so much as a second look!

So as I was walking the East-West Trail in Chattahoochee Bend State Park, I noticed a nice reflection on a small pool in a rivulet. You can only wonder how the light penetrates through the full canopy of leaves and is able to reveal an otherwise easily missed spot along the way.

It is indeed easy to miss the forest for the trees.

So we need to keep an open eye AND an open mind all of time time so we don’t miss a thing!

It is worthy of getting away and taking a walk to absorb the other parts of life. We all need to do it more often.

Looks like nature's impressionistic painting.  She's been creating those canvases since the dawn of time, and man thought it was all his idea.

Spending time in nature is a great way for myself to charge the batteries up for another long real estate week

Taking time to see what is around us without looking for the next big thing is what we need to do.
