I have a backlog of photos to post. . .they will appear here bit by bit. This set is from last month's trip with one sister to visit the other sister. We had beautifully cool weather for summer in North Carolina and took the opportunity for an outing in William B Umstead State Park, near Raleigh. It's a different sort of woods then I am used to in northern Indiana.
Lunch time, looking out over the view below. We also saw the first of many inch-long hoppy toads along our trail. Can you spot some in the last two photos? I am intrigued by the differences in coloration, each appropriate for the setting we saw them in.

I've taken on a prayer practice of looking for the moments of light in each day, whether actual or metaphorical, and then writing or posting photos of what I find.
