went on a really pretty hike today to this secret spot i found a few summers ago. its a bunch of beautiful natural clear pools and boulders that lead you to this sweet waterfall that doesn’t have a name. I also met a friendly snake on the way back
So my friend Lauren and I are on the Oneonta Trail/Horsetail Falls loop which is 4 miles long. And as you may or may not know, I am not much of an exercise person if at all. So we are literally hiking up hill and I am getting pretty winded but I didn’t want to complain and I wanted to keep trucking. To get my mind off the burning sensation in my calves, I put on some tunes.
Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down” came on the shuffle and we turned a corner and saw this log and walked towards it and realized this was the view.
It was a bit of epiphany moment to see something so beautiful like this. Pictures just don’t do it justice.
Trees and clouds and sky for day. The river looked like it never ended. Super grateful for this.
