Yesterday I set out on another hike at the Land of Medicine Buddha and into the Enchanted Forest. This time with my good friend, Jen.
It was an absolutely gorgeous morning. How could it not be though, with the amazing place we call home.
We took a shorter route than I did the last week. This one about a mile and a half. After that loop, we walked the Eight Versus Trail to get a little extra land in. We finished at about 3 miles. 3 glorious miles though.
It was the first time that I went to the temple and saw this amazing statue. It was huge. I am assuming about 25 feet tall. All indoors.
I didn’t go in, but will next time. Maybe bring a token of my gratification for whomever created this beautiful place for me to enjoy.
Even though I am not religious, I find that looking at these little beautiful scenes that I find all over this property, brings me a calm. I’ll welcome that any time.
While visiting one of the little shrines in the Enchanted Forest, I found a rock that was placed for Madyson Middleton. I was hoping I would see one. That made me smile. HOWEL FOR MADDY!!
At one point of the short round about, we walked down hill. Steep down the hill. My knees don’t usually like that, but I am feeling pretty great today, so I’ll probably to it again if I want a shorter hike day.
I love looking around and noticing all of the changes going on for Autumn. The color of the leaves, the ferns in full force, the wildflowers dyeing off.
I can’t wait to go back! 🙂
