Many years ago, I participated in a wine tasting and the sommelier had described a particular wine as having "a hint of forest floor" taste. At the time I chuckled, but if I were to guess what he would have been tasting, I'll bet it was very similar to the smells of the ravine today: sweet and earthy yet fresh. The aromatic wisps are stirred up by the creek and delivered gently to your nose as you breath in the crisp autumn air. Ahhhhhhh.
As always, some pictures for you to enjoy. I'm certain I felt just like Columbus upon discovering this strange new world filled with treasures.

Ended the trip with a peek at the lake. Gorgeous.
Have a light-filled day!
