Stories Left Behind

I posted pictures of our wonderful camping/hiking overnighter a few days ago. Those were from my camera. Yesterday my 13-year-old daughter downloaded her pictures; and while we had many of the same photos, she also had some that gave a completely different perspective of our hike.
We didn't see any bears or a "bee nest," but we appreciated the warning.

Someone's discarded clothes.

Lovers' trees. Or as my mother would say, "Fools names and fools faces often appear in public places."

A single grave marker in the middle of the woods, off the trail. We came up with all kinds of possible stories about Jennifer.

I love how my daughter captures this other perspective: the woods whispering not just with waterfall and squirrels, but with the stories other people leave behind.


  1. Wow - great photos. That last would would have freaked me out!!

  2. Great photos! I would have been a little freaked by the bear warnings and love what your mom said about the names!!

  3. Loved the warning sign :)

    Have a great day!

  4. I like the way she see things.

  5. Lovely photo's and a real insight to your daughters perspective. Very interesting.
