I love this great red maple that stands at the intersection of two trails.
Natures dedicated tree-guide there to help the trail-explorer orient herself.
Along with a friendly fun nod from Cousin Itt.
On the way home I turned the car around to get this picture of our heron-friend. Perhaps spotting a soon to be caught frog-lunch. Nature's marvels abound around us. As you can keep exploring what is simply present. 💚 Peace
