Here's what happens during taper. I feel rested. I want to run. So, I go and walk, which turns into a little running. My only salvation is bringing my camera to take pics.
These are some of the rocks I run over. Flying from the top of one to the next.
Mysterious little green plants. Weeds, to some. Brilliants works of art to others.
The remains of a bad ass spider. I thought he was a live critter while taking the picture. Looks like a mere shell of an arachnid up close.
No day in the woods is complete without a pic of the sun through the trees.
Remember the giant turtle head on the upper yellow trail? This is his brother on the "trail that goes nowhere."
