Wordless Wednesday…Bear in the Woods!!!


All my life through, the new sights of Nature
made me rejoice like a child.

Marie Curie



We barely saw the bear in the woods but though he was barely a bear, he was there nevertheless. 


Keep your eyes open when enjoying what Mother Nature has provided for us. She’s full of surprises!



In every walk with nature one receives
far more than he seeks.
John Muir.

Good morning Kathy. The great part of taking a nature walk is that no matter how many times you walk the same trail you never look at it the same way twice. Enjoy your day.

Enjoy your walks.

I've been to two medical appointments today. I would prefer a walk through the neighborhood.

Have a great day and an outstanding week.

Nature is a great giver of gifts, all you have to do is watch a sunrise or sunset to know that, and there is so much in between as well.

Beautifully said Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 I can only imagine what you saw on your daily walks on the Camino.

Kathy if you have to run into a bear in the woods, that is the kind of bear you want to run into.

George Souto thankfully I've yet to run into a bear. Larry however has run into a mountain lion who came very up close and personal.

Too cute, Kathy.  There is a trail along the American River Parkway near my home, that I often visit.  After Halloween last year, I saw several carved pumpkins on the trunk of a fallen Oak tree.  I suspect someone relocated them to that place, for the deer and wildlife to eat.

He doesn't look like the type of bear that will last very long in the woods all by himself, haha.

We have recently discovered the joy of all the great "nature" videos with calming music on Youtube. This post reminded me of that.
