Out My Back Door

 
I hiked this trail all afternoon...which really means, I hiked this trail for approximately 13 minutes and 24 seconds. That's when I got creeped out that I was in the middle of a forest without my Mountain Manny to fend of the bears.
 
Apparently, there are no bears in this wood, but I've met some pretty mean deer in my day, so beter safe than sorry, I always say...

 
 
 
 


Enjoy your weekend!

  1. It's beautiful but I'm with you; I'd be creeped out just thinking a wild animal could come out of those woods at any time! :)

  2. That's lovely, that is! Maybe one weekend you and your MM can spend time hiking it together. That would be a sweet date! And free! :)

  3. Gorgeous! But you were wise to stop when you did. You never know when a rabid deer will pop out and try to lick you to death!

  4. I think I would have stayed just the same amount of time if I was the only one there.

    hope your day is sunny and sweet.

  5. What an awesome trail!! I used to love when I lived in Mid-Missouri and had trails kind of like this around me. But, they were close to streets, other wise, I would have wanted someone there to be with me just in case of lions and tigers and bears. Oh, my!

  6. That is amazing. I wish I lived somewhere where places like these are accessible to me. I'm sure you can get in touch with nature wherever you are but some places make it easier than others.

    1. It's crazy to me too that I live in a place so beautiful--and you're right, one can connect with nature everywhere, but there are places definitley easier than others!

  7. Beautiful pictures! The post cracked me up (well, duh!) because I, too, have gone hiking in the acreage behind the house without my husband and have freaked myself out, thinking I could get lost, and hurried back home! Never mind that the area we are talking about is only 7 acres, probably, total, entirely fenced...trails throughout...but there is something about having a mountain man by your side, isn't there?!

  8. Such beauty!! Frost on the ferns, and a mysticism floating in the air...and no bears!

    1. But there were probably vampires, or zombies...or deer, which, quite frankly, can be just as terrifying. ;)

  9. My eldest daughter always speaks of forest paths as "looking shifty" when we go camping as if they were about to jump out an stab us with some shivs!

    I'm stopping by from A to Z and working my way through the list (I'm trying to get to as many as I can!) but I like what I see here so I'm jumping on board!
