Evening approaches and quiet comes to the forest called Bower Woods. Only a few squirrels and a nuthatch were making any sounds. The trails have gone silent from those who had been out enjoying an evening walk, some with their dogs, some were jogging, and a few were riding their bikes. I think it was just too beautiful outside today for many to stay indoors.
I paused here along Piper Creek and enjoyed the quiet, watching the faint blue of the sky above reflect off it’s surface, contrasting so nicely with the warm tones of autumn. A few of the trees were sporting a nice blue reflection on their bark too and there was barely a breath of wind left. A small cottontail rabbit watched me from where it thought I couldn’t see it as I walked back to my vehicle in the dark.
