We went off trail

A gorgeous day to explore another path.

If some of you may remember, I did my most recent school project with the concept of "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost. And today, I felt like we took the puny version of it =)

Off we drove to hike the mountains above Pasadena and found many quiet moments to bond with nature.

It's always fun to explore and even better to do so outdoors. I will never take fresh air and warm sunshine for granted.

Because we took the lesser traveled paths, we came across many woodland creatures and untouched land. There were quiet moments of possible encounters but alas, we were not so lucky =)

Odo did find a tepee made of sticks though...

A stream of consciousness flowed through our minds that health is important to the physical body, mind, and soul. I will miss these days.

As the sun was beginning to make its exist, we took a last glance at the fallen beauty and breathed in the day's events. Pictures are beautiful but in the end, they are only pictures. You really have to be there to appreciate it, you have to touch it to know how it feels, and you have to taste it to digest it.

*This does not mean to actually go up to a tree and lick it. That's your prerogative...

The sun may have set on our day's journey but the location will be revisited!
