If the weather’s nice and there isn’t a lot of snow or ice on the ground, hiking a trail is a nice respite after the holidays.  It’s a way to walk of cookies and other treats.

Just a thought as I gaze on a reflection of wood on water at Salt Creek.

 A Word of the Week Challenge: Wood


Salt Creek Trail is a long, scenic hike along a trail, by a waterfall and old mill and nature center.  I’ve written about it in other posts:

  1. Always nice to get out and about after being cooped up. We were strolling the riverbanks in Durham this morning. Peaceful, though a bit muddy. Beautiful photos.

  2. I actually saw this post first before the mill. My first thought was how many Salt Creek’s are there and my second was is she in DesPlaines? I lived near Salt Creek one time when it went over the banks; the second time I worked near it and it flooded my workplace up to the mezzanine level. I lived near the Fox River at that time and the Fox River nearly went over its banks too.

    Your photos are beautiful. I know you visit my blog frequently; sorry I haven’t been by here sooner. You have some nice work and I look forward to seeing more of it.
