Breakheart Calls

On Monday I went for a run in Breakheart Reservation. A clear, bright blue sky, cool air, tacky trails and a lot of solitude are what I found there. It was a day made for running, or so I thought. Although past its peak, the colors of the forest demanded more of my attention than wisely given while running. I decided to make this trip into the woods more of a run/hike so I could enjoy the beauty at a more leisurely pace.

Still waters reflect the colors of autumn. If I were an artist I would like to paint this.

Green, orange and yellow ring the calm blue water of Silver Lake.

Clear, cold and alone in the woods.

One of my favorite spots for a lunch break.

For all you moss lovers.

Mushroom caps suspended in air with a little help from a friend.

Ranger Station shows off its fall colors. There's a warm fire blazing in the field stone fireplace inside.  It's a great place for a post-run cup of hot chocolate.

I'll be back....


What's on your mind?
