prairie grass

Today I walked on Trinity Trail, about twenty minutes from my house. Although the temperature was in the high 50s or low 60s, the vigorous wind felt more chill than that reading.

Although I had my mp3 player earplugs on, ambient sounds from the surroundings added a soundtrack to the hike--the caws of a crow, the song of a warbler, the little Fall-cheep of a cardinal, and the sound of bells around labradors gently ringing.

I like the way the grass looks like a sea of yellow/brown in this season, and the sight of passing horse riders enjoying the chill day.

A few of the last of the butterflies flittered by, and the last blooms of Autumn flowers were making their last appearances.

I enjoy the meditative relaxation of hiking a rural trail.
