Sitting on a rock at the side of the trails you hear the birds, squirrels, and water from the creek. The trees are gorgeous in reds, oranges and yellows. Listening to the other walking hikers today is so interesting, I have heard no one speaking English...maybe six different languages. See, everyone likes to come here! We are fishing today and I am amazed at how fishing equalizes everyone, at least for a moment. The older gentleman and wife who are well dressed and kind of classy to the guy that looks like a punk, but joyously opens up about fishing. AmazingOctober 25, 2012 Like Add a Comment
