Have you read Bill Bryson’s A Walk in the Woods, Rediscovering America Along the Appalachian Trail? If you enjoy hiking, or wry, funny anecdotes showing a glimpse into Americana at its most quirky, you really should. Meanwhile, come take a walk in the woods with us, Jade & W style. (From our recent weekend away in a cabin just an hour away from St. Louis.)
I can guarantee it won’t be anything like Mr. Bryson’s trek, though. ;-)
WriterGirl! Coffee on the patio before heading out.
The trail from the back of the cabin.
What else would you expect to find in the woods?
Me: But wait, there’s more! W: It looks like it’s going to storm. Me: We won’t melt. C’mon!
Hang on, what’s this?
Maybe I shouldn’t have asked.
Wait. You wanna do what?
I thought you were worried about the storm…
And there’s still more trail to explore!
Oh. Well, if you insist.
Somehow I don’t think you’re worried about the storm anymore.
…neither am I.
Oops, I guess W was right…!
But wait…there’s more! We have time, I’m sure of it, because…
I found a deer blind! And the perfect opportunity for a Scavenger Hunt.
And we only got rained on a little.
So, wanna come hiking with us next time?
(PS – I believe I got two Scavenger Hunts this time, “Waterfall” and a suggested location of “Deer Blind.” Whatcha think, Curvaceous Dee?)
