Old Stumps on the Trail

Bend in the trail

 

Warning!  This post will be incredibly boring unless you are a hard core nature lover.  And maybe even if you are!

We went for another LONG walk today.  Aside from being a little achy, I feel more relaxed and stress-free than I have in a long time.

Rather than try to say something fascinating about a walk in brown Georgia woods in the winter, I’ll just post photos of things that intrigued me.

This old stump looked like some kind of mythical sea creature to me

Odd stump

Graceful old stump

Twin trees

Two more twin trees. They were everywhere. I've never seen so many anyplace else.

See-through tree. It had an eerie look to it.

Winged branches

    Enjoyed your pictures–I have been following your blog for some time now and have always enjoyed your nature pics. Makes me want to jump into our Casita and head for the nearest State Park.

    • Hi, Donnette, glad to hear from you! Also am happy that someone else is enjoying the low-key nature pictures.

      It’s a little cold here today, but everyone has fires burning and is outside anyway. Hope you can get your Casita out soon! 🙂

    I love your pictures. I do the same thing . . . take pictures of wintergreen, rotten logs, pine trees, bark. Nature never ceases to fascinate me. Camping vicariously through you. Although it’s up to a balmy 39 degrees here in Michigan, camping is a long way off for us. Thanks for sharing.

    • Marsha, sometimes I feel silly posting pictures of little details that I find interesting or beautiful. I’m so glad others share that love for such details.

      I feel so blessed to be able to camp this winter. Last year the weather was just brutal (for us). This winter I feel as though we have been given a gift. I don’t know how long the weather will last, but I am loving every minute out here!

      Hope camping weather comes soon for you! 🙂

  3. You have a good eye for taking pictures out in nature. I love taking pictures of old things and the unusual. Thanks for sharing I enjoyed the walk with you.
