Sunday Afternoon Forest Walk

Bridle Trail, Forest Park

Fall is just crazy awesome!

I spent a wonderful Sunday afternoon ambling around Forest Park.

I seized the day and conquered my fear of digging up plants by gathering some dandelion root for tincture! Don't worry, the greens won't go to waste... I'm going to use them in salad. I also picked some Lady's Thumb (for salad) , Mugwort, Violet leaves...and some assorted cool stuff that I couldn't name.

There were chipmunks, horses, dogs, and birds fluttering in the bushes.

I reveled in the coolness of the air, the lovely greens and yellows of the foliage, the coziness of my new walking shoes...and the quiet as I wandered around the bridle paths. It was just what I needed. Bliss.
