I am constantly inspired by nature,
so knew I had to join in with the challenge theme of nature
hosted by Nadine at Tiny Woolf
I went on a 15 km (9 mile) hike a couple of days ago just a few miles from home
And last weekend my daughter and I drove a couple of hours to hike on the Alaskan coast.
We are always amazed the difference in vegetation that we find just a few hours away.
The forest is so big and lush compared to the forest where we live.
This short hike takes you to a little bay on the ocean,
where we love to explore and discover new things.
My pockets were heavy with smooth stones that I had collected,
and I also found a lovely piece of driftwood that found its way home with me.
The clouds and bits of showers added to the beauty of the mountains.
On the hike back to the car, I picked a few pieces of fern
That joined my piece of driftwood
and a few of my rocks that I collected on the shore.
The beauty I find in nature is a constant inspiration.
