It was a beautiful day on the Ouachita Trail today. Rather than just selfishly run 20 miles or so by myself, I took the kids to the trail and we worked on our adopt a trail section. There really was not much work to be done as the trail is in pretty good shape as it is. Unfortunately, I left the camera in the truck for most of our hike and so I missed some great photo opportunities. However, I did manage some good ones as you see below.
The hike was a couple of easy miles and the kids loved it. They often hiked off the trail and climbed boulders. The foilage was the most beautiful I have ever seen it! Absolutely incredible. The kids kept picking up leaves and asking me to hold them. They were all sorts of beautiful shades of red and orange. What a wonderful fall day. I wish I could bottle it up and keep it forever but alas those darn kids have to grow up.
