It’s time to thank my trusted companion, the Pate Hollows Trail, which has kept me mentally and physically healthy this remarkable year.
Today, on Christmas day, we had a bit of powdery snow, providing just the right amount of contrast to what makes the trail, the ground.
Thanks for the leaves, the ferns, the moss and the mushrooms.
Thanks also for the water and the roots.
Which teaches us an important lesson, maybe the only one: There always is one more step to take.
