This image was taken at Belton Lake (BLORA) in Texas. My family and I decided to take a hike in the woods that day. It was a bit hot, but we took plenty of water. Our daughter was very little and it was slow going over the rocky terrain mixed with roots of the many cypress trees along the paths. I didn’t have much time to take any photos of myself. I was having to keep up with my daughter and keep an eye on my son. This is not my favorite photo, but that was a fun day. I loved seeing my children enjoying nature and really seeing them take an interest in it. My Mom took us out in the woods at an early age and it really fostered a love of nature. I’m happy to pass that on to my kids.


“The woods were made for the hunters of dreams,
The brooks for the fishers of song;
To the hunters who hunt for the gunless game
The streams and the woods belong.”
~Sam Walter Foss
