Still Enjoying the Nature Trails and Letterboxing
We have been on different trails, but I think I will share a few photos of the North Augusta Greenway nature trail today. My sons and I LOVE it there!!!
Though it does not seem like it on this photo, this hill was pretty steep when you are at the top looking down. At first, I thought....maybe I shouldn't go down there. At my age, I might break something or even have a hard time climbing back up. "Don't go down, Sweetie," I said to Dustin, "you may fall down and get hurt."
A young gentleman was fishing in the area and encouraged me, "Go on down! You can make it! Just hold on to some of the limbs." Deep breath.....hmmmm.....I see that others are down there, and this guy certainly was able to do it. I'll take on his tip and encouragement. I knew that deep inside, the kid in me wanted to try this adventure. I'm always curious as to what is around the corner or in odd paths of nature trails. Plus, there is a part of me that says......yes, I am 46 years "young", I feel blessed each day that I am alive and have my health......and my goodness, I want to live that way! Don't get me wrong, I would not want to get seriously hurt on any of these trails, and I'm not throwing caution to the wind doing wild sports or entertainment that would endanger my life or that of my family. It is simply that I would rather sprain an ankle or break an arm "truly living" and enjoying the nature that I see and the time with my family, than occupy space on this planet in idle comfort, or doing nothing under the policy and practice of "playing it safe". Some of you will fully understand what I mean.
Isn't the Greenway Nature Trail just beautiful!!! It brings me joy even posting about it. *happy sigh* Thank you so much for taking this virtual hike with us!
