Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

Dead Mans Hill.............................

Out for the day with Edna. It has been a very pretty day, sunny and bright. It was quite warm too. I went out for the day with Edna. She loves to drive and I do not. She knows all the back roads all over the state and I do not.Anyway, we didn't let a beautiful day go to waste.

So we went north in the hope that the colours are changed, while not at their peek, or maybe past the peek? I don't know, but beautiful either way. I don't know all the roads but somehow we ended up in and around East Jordan and Alba. We stopped for lunch in a very very small town and it was awesome food as it often is in some of those small places. Sometimes we take a picnic but some days its just nice to find a quiet place and enjoy a lunch out.

Some colours were brilliant, some muted but it was a lovely ride.

We stopped by "Dead Man's Hill" I copied the sign and that explains it for us. It was windy on the top of the hill. Exhilarating. I love the wind like that, the nip in the air so fresh and clean. I wished I could have been alone but there were a few people taking in the view across the Jordan Valley.

I would have loved to have gone for a hike but that was for another day.

The fungus on the trees, so pretty.

It is hard to capture the colours on film, especially from a moving car, but I tried.

The sky was pretty all day, layers of clouds.

The seeds make a pretty picture also. Anyway it was a lovely day with a lovely lady.

It would have been a perfect day for hiking but then again, it's bow hunting season. So as it always is at this time of year, the beauty of the forest is tainted. We can't really hike unless we wear bright orange. I prefer to stay away. It's safe enough in these places because most ban hunting, but not all so one has to be careful.
