We felt the need for a walk, away from the farm, last weekend and chose to do so along the Pine Creek Rail Trail. The weather was fine and we were glad we had seized the opportunity before the predicated rains would arrive. On the way home we slowed as we passed a section of the creek which I have photographed in the past and blogged about. It’s a beautiful spot which affords a clear view of the wooded hills of the Tiadaghton State Forest. WordPress blogger garyschollmeier has a particular penchant for building and photographing cairns in this way. I have admired Gary’s work and do not want to claim that the thought behind the image below is original and my own, it is not. In any case, I believe the constructed cairn adds to the sense of peace expressed in the still water and reflected landscape of this beautiful place.
