Everybody’s walkingPosted: October 16, 2012
The turnout for the group walk was great. Thank you all so much for participating. It’s been fun (and quite interesting!) being able to accompany you on your walks. Please visit the links as you work your way through this post. Just think of all the mileage you’ll get in without having to move. lol!
Sallyann got us started by Walking home, taking us along as she leaves work and walks home in the early morning. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about Sallann’s walk home, and she ended with the always-cute (always makes me smile) Alice.
Karma took us Walking Along at the Rice Nature Preserve where she found the beauty in nature, as well as some great views. She got a little lost, but the sunlight helped her find her way.
Next we join Bo for A Colorful Autumn Hike in Wisconsin. She leads us through a prairie remnant and a hardwood forest, showing off Mother Nature’s autumn colors. I can well understand her need to stop more than once for that “one last shot.”
Teresita helped us unwind with her thoughtful contribution to the Group Walk, ending with a beautiful exclamation mark.
Rosie, in California, hiked Backbone Trail Segment 7 where she went looking for faerie folk and found deer, fossils, a rattlesnake, and some great views.
Holly stepped up next with a walk at her favorite nature center in her Let’s Walk! post. The opening reflection is amazing. Holly captured some beautiful colors along the way, and ends with a really fun shot of her son.
In View 250: Apple Drive, Scott takes us to a couple of apple orchards in upstate New York. I swear I could almost smell the apples, and the view of the valley is amazing.
Last, but certainly not least, Kathy takes us from the Redwood Forests to the SF Bay waters, where the water sparkles and the forests look lush with ferns.
Once again, thank you all so much for participating, and another big thank you to Karma for suggesting it. Perhaps we should make this an annual event. What do you think? We could call it Walktober.
All of the above photos were taken at Oil Creek State Park in Pennsylvania last Friday during my annual leaf peeping excursion. The rest that follow are from this morning’s walk.
It is a cloudy and cool day here in the Bogs. The colors around the pond are stunning.
Autumn, the year’s last, loveliest smile.

Nothing is more fleeting than external form, which withers and alters like the flowers of the field at the appearance of autumn.

That’s it from the Bogs and elsewhere for today. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you had a chance to visit everyone else on their walks. If not, go now. Go on. You won’t regret it.
Wishing you an enchanting day, evening, or night… wherever and whenever you are on the spectrum of time.
