We took off down the winding road, singing a little tune and thrilled to be out amongst the wild.
Our path was interrupted by a cascading creek, which quickly stole our attention, it whispered our names, and beckoned us to follow.
It led us thru a maze of rocks carpeted with dewy moss, past thickets of thorn and underbrush and into a valley of almost eerie stillness.
We explored till our adventurous hearts were full and our shoes to muddy and cold to carry on. Really, I couldn't ask for more.
