Yesterday my wife's hiking group was invited to walk the trails on the property of a local artist who lives near the New River. It was a beautiful day, so I elected to go along. The house itself is an interesting design built in modular form. She has lavished much attention on her gardens; apparently she doesn't have the wild deer problem that we have The view from the front lawn is beautiful. The walk through the trails leads through a old barn which serves as the artist's workshop. The trails leads through a high meadow with spectacular views to the river. Eventually the trail winds through a forest down to the river bank, providing close up views of the impressive limestone cliiffs The trail through the forest is studded with surprising artistic creations perched on rocks or decorating trees. It was too dark in the forest yesterday to photograph these without a tripod, but I plan to go back soon better equipped. Thanks for looking. Hope you enjoyed!
