Hikers Heaven

I am very very lucky to live where I do. On any given weekend I can pack up my son, his backpack carrier, meet up with hiking buddies and trek out into the woods to discover the beauty that our area provides. This is a simple trail, but surrounded by fern covered ground and moss covered rocks and trees, in itself is a stunning sight.

  5. What a gorgeous trail! I'm a sucker for ferns and moss. I would absolutely looooove this trail!

    Stopping by Communal Global blog hop. Have a great day! :)

  6. How gorgeous! Happy hiking. ☺

  7. That is a beautiful area, indeed. Love the moss covered rocks.

  8. You're fortunate!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  9. Looks like some interesting footing!


  10. Very beautiful! Like a fairytale. Great post for H.

  11. So beautiful! I love the colours and textures in the moss.

  12. The area you live in is so lush and green. I don't blame you for wanting to be out in it all the time.
    The rockiness of that trail would be difficult for me to hike but I sure would like too.

  13. It's very pretty. I can't wait for my area to look like that again.

  14. Lovely photo! My hubby and I enjoyed many trails during our week vacation in Oregon. It is so lush and green, the mountains are gorgeous too.

  15. OK, let's go for a hike! I'll have to plan one soon.

  16. Delightful hiking trail and photo for H ~ ^_^

  17. I wish I could hike but I have to suffice with nice gentle walks because of a bad back.

  18. oh so beautiful! I love the way you have shown the track disappearing over the rise - it makes me want to follow. Yes you are so lucky to live close to trails like this. I am looking forward to cooler weather here in Australia so we can go bush walking again.
    have a wonderful week. I am joining you through Our World Tuesday.

  19. I do so missed getting out to the woods like I used to do so long ago, that is a very pretty picture indeed and brings up many good memories for me.

    I follow your link from ABC Wednesday where I had entered my Letter H at.

  20. It looks a great place to go hiking. I love that you can share the experience with your young son.

  21. Gimme a push and I'll climb that hill!

  22. That does look like a nice hike! Beautiful area. I really like all the moss.

  23. so many wondrous greens. I feel the same way about where I live, a different climate and terrain, but oh so beautiful, all year round.

  24. I know this is in Oregon and I'm afraid I probably have a similarly long list for North Carolina, but this looks like it could be over on the Appalachian Trail. It would be the Pacific Northwest trail, even. :)

  25. That would definately be a very pleasurable time.

  26. Wow. I would LOVE to take a walk there with my camera. You are lucky to have that available to you.. Thank you for linking into this week's Nature Notes..Michelle

  27. Oh so lovely, you are lucky indeed! Our first linky party is on, we hope you can join us at:


    Have a beautiful weekend!

  28. Look heavenly indeed.

    Catching up with letter H entries.
