A Day of Enchantment on the Path of Nature

 As the day dawns, the sun filters through the mist rising from the river. 

 Rockport State Park Washington 

   My soul feels the energy as the light spreads
from that which it touches.

          Rockport State Park Washington


New bridges to cross, rivers to follow and forests to explore..

Rockport State Park Washington

This is my journey down the path of nature.

Rockport State Park Washington

 Where trees so green touch the sky.

 Rockport State Park Washington 

Looking down as I walk by.

 Rockport State Park Washington

Treading lightly on their toes, crossing bridges the trail still goes..

Rockport State Park Washington

I follow creeks and feel the flow. 

Rockport State Park Washington

Of Natures intricacies everywhere I go.

Rockport State Park Washington

I sit and ponder…

Rockport State Park Washington

This green web of life 

Rockport State Park Washington

Where one is connected depending on the other. 

 Rockport State Park Washington

Living together in balance

 Rockport State Park Washington

A vision we ourselves all strive for.

 Rockport State Park Washington

  As the day ended rain fell where needed 

Rockport State Park Washington


Bringing new life so that
the bridges you cross take you to new experiences
the rivers you follow soon flow in your veins
and the forests you explore reveals its’ secrets….

Rockport State Park Washington



May everyone be as blessed with such beauty in nature…

To Everyone

Good Morning…       Good afternoon…     Good Night..

Whatever it is to you..

Excellent series, Carrie! Thanks for taking us along with you.

Good morning Carrie! Thankyou taking me for a walk in this beautiful land. Not sure I am a nature person with all this around me, but looking your pics this morning give me a little think in my little mind, may be i should have a go once more travel a bit more to place... to explore, to see, to try, to take risk and who care or don't care what will land in front of me. To see to taste the future instead worrying about things at home alone. Your pics change my life toward life this morning, thank you Carrie, need a deep think on life before the end. Life is to short to waste. Wish hubby understand me with that and not just dad everywhere he go. Both are nice people but can not separate everywhere they go or things they do, together like a twin most the time. GOD... help! Sorry Carrie, don't know how i end up like this here. Have a lovely day my dear friend. Mei

Mei said...

Thank you for your lovely words other days. Your special too... Carrie! :-)

Just so beautiful with all the trees.

I love all the green .
Your word are so beautiful.
We could have walked together. Some of us are shooting the sam ethings in different places and light. Makes each walk so interesting. Stunning beyond words. Hope all is well.

Goodness me Carrie, these photo's are gorgeous !
Looking at the mist rising from the water and the slowed flow of the water over the rocks in the creek are actually quite good enough to feature in a magazine.
Very nice photography !

Carrie.. if you get a chance could you take a pic of a gardener snake?
We have a lot of snakes here but they're all so deadly that if one is seen in someone's garden during summer, that would be on the nightly news with a warning for everyone to take extra care and watch out for snakes

Carrie, enjoy the sunshine.
And have a fantastic weekend !

The more you analyze the more there is to see. It's never-ending. And the best parts are those that can't be re-created. The best we can do is to provide nature with a place to come and do its' thing and hope that it does it in a way that we appreciate.
Stunning photos...

Take care and have a great week ahead.

Carrie:I'm glad to have the rss feed working especially when in need of a bit of inspiration which is always found upon a visit to the garden. Thank you so much my friend for taking the time to share verse with photos so delightful("-")

G'day Carrie, I was truly lost in the peace and joy of your poetry. Such warmth and comfort to my soul. You are indeed a blessing to me and so many others around the globe.

I've been getting outdoors a lot more lately, going for walks down by the lake near where I live. Everyday is new and exciting with something special awaiting my arrival. As you have said, "My soul feels the energy." Nature is so incredible! What a gift God has given us!

Take care dear friend! Keeping you in my prayers.


With love and care from Kerrie. xOx

For me, there is nothing quite like a walk in nature to settle my soul, and speak to my heart. I enjoyed this blog "hike" with you. It was peaceful and serene, and your words were so inspiring.


Rick said...
