30 Days of Thanks Nov 10

Today was a beautiful day in NE Ohio so Dave and I took advantage of the good weather and went to Kendall Lake to hike the trails. The air was slightly cool but the hike up the hills kept us warm. During our three hour hike, we stopped occasionally to look at a squirrel or chipmunk and a pileated woodpecker teased us with his calls, taunting us to find him in the thick forest. We never did. We saw several Canada geese on the lake and a hawk screeched high up in the air as he circled overhead looking for prey.  We found a few fallen walnuts from some large walnut trees and several acorns. Dave said they fell from acorn trees.  I pointed out that they fell from oak trees, but he insisted that if walnuts fell from walnut trees, then acorns fell from acorn trees. We both smirked at the joke.

We drove home in silence as the sun was beginning to set in the west. Dave wanted to stop at a different place to hike some more, but we had spent the day outdoors and another stop would have us walking in the dark.  Tomorrow is supposed to be another beautiful day and another opportunity to hike again.

I am thankful for the beauty that surrounds us.
