Nature Walks – Walking Down a New Path

I am loving this cooler, Fall weather that is coming in. WHOOOO HOOOOO!!!!! I am finally able to get out again and enjoy life a bit more. With all the heat and our recent fires, that has been difficult to do lately. But today, was a good walking day. It was still a bit smoky, and we could not see the mountains that are ever present and not so far away, but all in all, it was still a good walking day. I went out walking with my friend Lori. We went walking down a new path today. Who knew all this beauty was all around us, right in my own city/suburb, right in my own “backyard”. It just goes to show, we don’t slow down to really notice all of Nature’s beauty nearly enough, and that it is literally right in front of us all the time. All we need to do is slow down a bit and open our eyes. Nature has left us some beautiful surprises everywhere we go.

This is City Park, in Westminster. Literally this is about 5 minutes from my house, and I’ve never walked this path before. I never even knew about it before today.

Even the drain covers are fun and cutely decorated.

We walked all around the path and then double backed and walked around the other way too. I’d say we walked about 1 1/2-2 miles total. We were talking and taking it slow, and of course I was stopping to take pictures along the way, but we had a very enjoyable and pleasant walk.

I have seen a lot of silverfish in my day, but this by far, is the largest silverfish I have ever seen.

Of course there were flowers.

There was even an alien invasion.

Someone even chose to surround himself with all this beauty as his as final resting spot, for all eternity.

Appreciate the all the gifts of today, for tomorrow they could all be gone.

Stay well and stay safe Everyone. ‘Til next time.
