Easley Park

"I think that I shall never see/A poem as lovely as a tree."
Quite true, especially when one sees the trees of a West Virginia autumn. Yesterday was Monday, our "family day". We went to a nearby statepark for a family hike - Dad, Mom, Emma, and Darcy. We loaded Emma in her Jeep stroller and started up the leaf-strewn path along a winding trail, heading towards some elusive "ruins" that Meghann was insistent we find. Over rocks, roots, and ravines we pressed on valiently, stopping periodically to gather a particular beautiful speciman of fallen foliage. We never did find the ruins, so we'll have to go back.


sounds like lovely fun--too bad we're so far away. MS doesn't get fall color as I know it...
