Trailshot Tuesday

Spring is right around the corner … ♡


On the trail to Van Trump Park just beyond Comet Falls at Mount Rainier. This one is definitely on my summer list. This year I’ll make it to Mildred Point.

How I Go To The Woods

Ordinarily, I go to the woods alone, with not a single
friend, for they are all smilers and talkers and therefore

I don’t really want to be witnessed talking to the catbirds
or hugging the old black oak tree. I have my way of
praying, as you no doubt have yours.

Besides, when I am alone I can become invisible. I can sit
on the top of a dune as motionless as an uprise of weeds,
until the foxes run by unconcerned. I can hear the almost
unhearable sound of the roses singing.

If you have ever gone to the woods with me, I must love
you very much.

  1. It’s been almost 5 years since I went to mildred point. It’s amazing! We should go back this year. I always go to sunrise, need to get some hikes in at Paradise for a change. Lol! No bad choices though is there?

    • Yes ! I have a few favorites at Paradise. I never made it out to Mildred Point (though I thought I had …) Looking forward to going back and finishing the hike 😊

You know I'd love to hear from you !
