The Path

"Do not go where the path may lead,
go instead where there is no path
and leave a trail" Ralph Waldo Emerson


























The nature path led me to fishing, hunting, camping, gardening, hiking, biking, dogs, canoeing & wilderness venues. It even returned me to the classroom as, for example, here I'm speaking to a group of seniors in Apple Valley, Minn. about birding.

  1. I am so glad you are speaking to young people. I think now, with the catastrophe in the Gulf ,we have a chance to teach children that we should be stewards of the earth and not destroyers.

  2. You never know where the 'path' will lead you - it seems your paths have been good ones :-) Nice pictures!

  5. Beautiful! Sometimes I tell my husband that I want to move to Minnesota (I used to have relatives there in St. Paul), and he says "Let's go," but then I think of the winters!

  7. Kia ora TB,
    What a great Path do have discovered and be upon. I love to how, as your photos reflect, the deeper we delve into wilderness the less known footprints are available, yet the Path still guides us. Kia kaha.
    Cheers,
    Robb

  10. I guess it would do us all a lot of good to get out there on that path for a couple hours everyday:)
