I really miss hiking. I used to hike every chance I got and took lots of pics. Now days I can only walk slow on the easy trails. I live about 20 minutes from Breaks Interstate Park. It's a beautiful park that straddles the state lines of Ky and Va. There are 13 1/2 miles of hiking trails in the park. Some are very strenuous and some that are still easy enough for me to hike. There are lots of overlooks from the trails into the canyon. It's the deepest canyon east of the Mississippi River and is called the Grand Canyon of the east.

This is a pic of my best friend on one of the overlook trails.

Getting out and doing it is the important thing. But one thing about doing it slower is you get to notice more things. There's more time to smell the roses.

You are so right about that. Since I can't cover as much ground any more I notice many smaller things I might have passed over otherwise. Like this little guy. He was no bigger than an earthworm.

And I always feel lucky when I can find interesting mushrooms.

Thanks for sharing your pictures. (We have ringnecked snakes around here, too.)

I just love them. I catch a lot of them. They are docile and would make good pets save for the odor they emit when they are handled. LOL

I'm glad someone else likes snakes. I mean, I'm not a fanatic but I think they're as neat as any other critter.

I agree, they're fascinating creatures. Just because you say you like them doesn't mean you go around kissing or cuddling them. But sometimes you have to be careful where you post photos of them. You can end up being lectured aout it not being an appropriate post. Rolling my eyes.

I think they are some of the most interesting of animals. Not cuddly but interesting. I don't handle many snakes but the ring necks are very docile. Texas Rat snakes are very pretty as babies and non poisonous but they are bitey. We have those too.

There was a pretty snake on our back porch one time. It was called a coachwhip. It was red like sunburn.

Those are pretty. I have never seen a real one.
