Its interesting how we often over look things that are closer to home. I know, as a kid I always thought things were much cooler out down the railroad tracks a few miles west of town. I'd go down that path every chance I had; I eventually found out I'd been walking right past all sorts of hidden treasure and adventure...some even in my own backyard!
Nothing has changed, but I do consider my own backyard as something of a larger scale than when I was a young person. I generally don't tend to wander that far on a daily basis because I'm constantly finding things in my own "back yard" that are stirring and new.
A couple mornings back I found This wonderful landscape in the early morning light, just a hop, skip and a jump from my very back door. This is Waterman Creek of course and it never ceases to amaze me how beautiful it is close up...and even closer to home!
