2013 Project 365

Project 365/296 – Autumn Hike on the Billy Goat Trail

Today was a day to truly enjoy Autumn in its finest glory. With the trees shining through in their yellows, oranges and reds. Heading towards Washington D.C. is the beautiful Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Park. With its visitors center on the Maryland side of Great Falls, this park is best known for its boulder scramble “Billy Goat Trail.”

A strenuous nine-mile hike over hill and dale. Through thick forests filled with autumn color, and climbing over boulders along the Potomac River. A trail not to be missed. A trail not for the faint of heart.

It will take me a little while to go through my images from today’s hike and I keep getting interrupted by Trick-or-Treaters.

I also discovered that my favorite processing software – Nik Color Efex Pro went on the fritz and I have reload, etc. So just a sampling from today to enjoy. Hope you’re having a wonderful and fun Halloween night. Bella

It’s said that All Hallows’ Eve is one of the nights when the veil between the worlds is thin – and whether you believe in such things or not, those roaming spirits probably believe in you, or at least acknowledge your existence, considering that it used to be their own. Even the air feels different on Halloween, autumn-crisp and bright.

    I had no trick or treaters this year, but our neighborhood is very spaced out and it was pouring.
