Hiking in the woods @ Falls lake NC

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.  Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.  The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. ” ~ John Muir

… and so on a Sunday morning we packed some banana pecan quick breads, along with some tea and decided to spend the day in the woods …  sat beside the pristine Falls lake in Wake forest and enjoyed the color of the Autumn !
