A 2nd day enjoying the beauty of God's handiwork ....

I guess 1 day just wasn't enough for us... 

So yesterday afternoon we headed back to the Lake ...

I wanted to check out the Audobon Nature trail and see how steep and what the trail was like where it began so I could gauge what kind of shoes and pants to wear and so on. This was the beginning of the trail ... it was little steep but not too bad and the glades of rock make it perfect for walking up. It's Nature's perfect steps .... I couldn't see all the way... as the trail meanders through the beautiful trees and bushes ...but it looked beautiful and I can't wait to throw on some tennies and jeans and see what's beauty is in store for us.

These Beautiful Cone Flowers Or should I say flower .. as the others had already bloomed and faded with time ... grow everywhere here. I think these just might be echinacea .. I'll have to find out for sure ...

Another vista of the Ozark Hills surrounding the Lake.... Can you just imagine the years that these trees have grown here and covered the landscape making the air clean and giving sheltered homes to the birds, deer, squirrels and so many more. 

The Geese were out again .. this time sitting in the marsh 

And today a few deer decided to poke out into the field and graze.... We kept at a far distance as to not disturb them.. I just threw on one of my zoom lenses so I could get up close without getting up close personally and disturbing them...

Isn't she lovely .... even though we were far away ... she kept an eye on us .. thank goodness for a good camera lens that can zoom in...

The last 2 days at the Lake have been a joy .. It's such a pleasure to be able to enjoy God's handiwork.  I'm feeling rather blessed  ..!

Wishing you all a beautiful and blessed week !

P.S. .... My sweet Flossie is still doing well. She's been weaned off all but one med now .. and so far so good .. I'll get a post up about her soon !
