30/30 Adventure

Last Sunday was warm and sunny enough to continue our trail walk.

We are playing a kind of game called 30/30.
 St. Louis County Parks invited us to visit their thirty parks - 
and walk specific trails.

So,
We traveled 15 miles to the town of Eureka -
to walk the 7 mile long Chubb Trail
 
It was a "watch your feet'" - steady as you go"- kind of walk.
I don't think we'll choose to do it again.

There's a complex of three connected county parks.
So, we'll be in the area again.

My favorite part?
Walking with my long-legged pupster
and
being reminded of the mountains.

Simpson Park

 
Did NOT look so much like this yesterday.
We decided to adventure out when it looked like we'd get up to 20 degrees.
No snow,  just cold.
No other people there, either.
(too cold for normal folk)

Just my tall pupster & I
Since she was created to enjoy mountains,
she's invigorated,
tail up,
super happy expression,
trying to get me to 
"Go Faster!"
 
Just for the Joy of it all.
 
No way did I take a camera - OR stop to sketch
5 layers - gloved hands stuffed in pockets
the county posted a few photos in the link above.
 
Be Well 
and
Be Happy 

-please-

love & love,

Chilly with a touch of warm

North Eastern side of The Garden
there's a place to "experience"
plants to touch
raised beds
plants to smell
and
a twisty - moving piece of art -
if a child touches - or the wind blows
the bells ring.

(yes, even when it's 14 degrees)

chilly - with a touch of warm today.
love & love,

Remembered the camera . . .

 There's an artist I admire
who says:

He is Brilliant.

I'm in-between.
Someday I'll be able to share all my stories with a pen.
Until then, I try to remember my teeny camera.


This hedge
 is surprising.
The design changes with the seasons
in mega colorful ways.


There's an Origami Exhibit going on at 'The Garden'.
I like this one:


Thank you for visiting!

Ink Trees

Plan to visit the Garden this week.
My favorite time is when it's just a 'regular' day.
No crowds, No fancy monetized events . . . 
(Yes,  I'm a shy person.)
 
Anyway, It's almost Inktober 
So, I decided to share a couple 'ink trees.'

 
There WOULD have only been two
 
BUT, i saw a movie about Bob Ross
and started painting 'happy ink trees.'
