Happy Trails

“Happy trails to you, until we meet again.
Happy trails to you, keep smilin’ until the end.
Who cares about the clouds when we’re together?
Just sing a song and bring the sunny weather.
Happy trails to you, ’til we meet again.”

Dale Evans & Roy Rogers

A Little Love At Standing Indian

Where some might look at a tree and see only its knots, others will see only its perfection.

A heart-shaped tree knot.I must have walked past this rhododendron tree a hundred times. For some reason, as I ambled along the bank of the Upper Nantahala River today, this heart-shaped knot caught my attention.

Maybe the light was just right? Maybe I was looking in the right direction?

Who knows? I’m not going to get all mystical on you.

But…I can tell you this. It isn’t the first time I’ve found something magical at Standing Indian.

What sort of surprises have you found along your path?

See ya’ on the trail,
