These photos come from my son and daughter-in-law. This past weekend they were invited on a 17-mile hike by her brother, with overnight camping. I thoroughly enjoyed their photos and they said I could share, with my heartfelt thanks.
There won't be a lot of narrative in my post today but I hope you will enjoy their photos as much as I did.
In the Seneca Creek Backcountry, there are nearly 60 miles of trails winding through stands of red spruce, open meadows and along fast-flowing mountain streams. Great Guide here to hiking in this area.
One of those magical moments when a mother came to get her baby. The little one jumped out of its hiding spot.
From yesterday's post.
My daughter-in-law's brother is a seasoned hiker and camper, and was able to give a lot of great advice. They set their tents up next to a stream. Bunchberry dogwood. It goes by several names. Creeping dogwood, Pudding berry being a couple.
Mountain laurel, also known as Spoonwood, Calico bush, Ivy bush.
They had a wonderful time and will be doing this all over again in the not too distant future. And I will be getting more great photos to share.
WOW! These ae gorgeous, and very unusual. They are like Nature Art.ReplyDelete
Thank you Ginny :) I agree!Delete
It looks truly lovely. A 17 mile hike is beyond me now but I thoroughly enjoyed seeing some of theirs. Please thank them for me.ReplyDelete
Thank you Sue, I certainly will. Beyond me too but I loved my virtual hike :)Delete
Mind blowing postReplyDelete

It has been years since I have been camping. I do love being in the woods and hiking, the photos are beautiful. Love the views of the mountains, the waterfalls and the sweet deer. Take care, enjoy your day! Have a happy weekend!
I can say the same thing Eileen, it's been years and only then a couple of times, both of which I enjoyed immensely. I also love being in the woods and hiking, though I can't go on long walks like I used to. Great memories though :) You take care and enjoy your day and have a happy weekend also :)Delete
How wonderful to have the opportunity to see beautiful scenery that they visited.ReplyDelete
Love that photo of them on the foot bridge - just delightful.
Thank you Margaret, so many super photographs, which will be great memory joggers in the years ahead :)Delete

Hi Jan, and thank you :) All the best to you too.Delete
It’s nice seeing someone else’s photos of hiking and camping since these are not activities I have ever done. We do go for walks, but have never done serious hiking or camped out, except in a hotel😀ReplyDelete
Only in my youth Dorothy, and only then a couple of times :)Delete
What a magical place! Really enjoyed the photos! Thank you!!! Big Hugs!ReplyDelete
That’s great MLC :) so glad and you are very welcome!Delete
Your "kiddos" are nature lovers and great photographers! 17 miles! Wow. The forest is beautiful and the picture of the doe and fawn is absolutely perfect! What a beautiful moment.ReplyDelete
Thank you Sallie :) I love how they see nature through their camera lens. Yes, a perfectly magical moment with the mamma dear and her fawn :)Delete
What a beautiful hike! So much to enjoy--the doe and fawn are pure magic.ReplyDelete
Thank you Martha Ellen :) I agree!Delete
