Veteran’ Day 2017 ~ 29 Degrees in Happy Valley
In spite of a temporary inconvenience, today could not have been more perfect. In so many ways.

Signs of fall begin to unfold
Leaves once green now red and gold
I am not looking forward to the cold.
Apples warn of heathen snow
The signs are grim in natures show
This winter will be a cold one I know.
Peaceful Intensity - a perfect reflection of who I am.

Bike Day in Letchworth State Park
Memorial weekend in the Catskill Mountains. We made a pit stop at Awosting Falls in the Minnewaska State Park Preserve.
Above Allen Falls
This adventure had us traveling around the upper region of the Adirondacks looking for waterfalls. We found the trail for Allen Falls and followed it through an amazing display of nature. We reached the falls to find a magical work of art only nature can provide.
As we were hiking the trail leading into Allen Falls I noticed some dandelions along the way. I made a wish and as the trail opened up to the falls the magical splendor that unfolded told me that it would come true.

After a day of chasing Waterfalls around the Finger Lakes we ended up at Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge. After slowly making our way around the refuge we opted to stay and watch the sun set.
The Trillium is the essence of the number three. The energy of three demands attention. This flower erupts scattered on the forest floor under a shroud of leaftops providing shade and protection. A narcissistic bloom wanting to be the center of attention surrounded by over protective trees. The Trillium will always catch your eye if you are hiking in the forest in the spring. Watch for their attention grabbing detail in white, pink, purple and red.
