|View of the Antietam Creek|
I simply love the trails at the Battlefield. It's a safe place so I'm not afraid to walk most of them alone, but there are a couple that are too remote for me to walk alone and feel safe. Call me chicken if you wish, but I'd rather lean towards caution. I save the remote trails for the weekends when Ron can come along. Walking is another thing we have in common.
Now, I know I should be in a church on a Sunday morning, but I just love the inner peace I get from walking under old shade trees with the loves of my life.
I spent 25 yrs worth of Sunday mornings in a church, now I just want to be outside come heat or cold. Maybe I'll find another church until then you can find me at the Battlefield. I know the Lord understands.
I would like to show you one of my favorite Sunday morning trails. The name of this trail is Snavley Ford. It's approx. 2 miles. Most of the trail is in the shade and hugs the Antietam Creek. This trail is pretty easy except for the hill at the end, but if I can manage to climb it I think you can too.
Wild Day Lillies grow along the trail. They break up all the green with some brilliant orange. The butterflies are usually close by.
Maryland's state flower offers a bit more color along the trail.
Okay, I have several other photos of this wonderful trail I would like to post, but after several tries I'm giving up. I tried on the desktop computer and now on the laptop, but no luck posting more photos.
I guess this means you will just have to walk it to see it. Early morning is best if you ask me. Maybe I'll see you one weekend. Happy trails to you.
