Cataloguing life on and off the trail

July 7, 2018

Back in the high life again!

“Enjoy the little things in life because one day you`ll look back and realize they were the big things.”
                                                                                                                                   ― Kurt Vonnegut

After a three week hiatus, we hit the trail early this morning. Forecasts had promised a beautiful, moderate day and they were correct. The Cub Lake trail at Natchez Trace State Park is one of our personal favorites. Car door to car door it figures at just over six miles of excellent hillwalking, although parts of it get fairly close (hairy, wooly, overgrown) at this time of year.

Since we had been away from the trail for a bit, I decided to lighten my load by leaving my Canon at home and hiking only with my iPhone camera.  Fortunately, I didn't miss any opportunities for long shots, and the woods offered up some beauties for me to snap on the fly.

As you'll see, it was a great day for fungi. A couple images may seem to be duplicates, but look closely, the second image includes my sunglasses for scale. Those mushrooms were huge!

We were happy to see some much needed trail improvements. "Scary, slanty bridge" has been replaced by a beauty of a new one. Some tiny reroutes in that area have created a few spots that are now more picturesque.

Trying something new with the pictures. Let me know if you like the gallery presentation. Click on the first picture to open the slideshow. This is all new to me friends. Thanks for following along.

Until next time—be well, and take good care,

Mona B
