Beauty and Hope

The Hermann's Hiking Group is well known for their hiking excursions in the Fraser Valley and I had the pleasure of joining this group about a year ago.  My goal at the time was to learn about the magnificent setting my family and I call home.  I didn't realize that I would come away with so much more.  Below are some of the snapshots that I took yesterday.

There is something quite magical travelling through deep woods as layers of green surround and enfold you. You smell the freshness of the forest and listen to quiet...

If you look closely you can find flowers of all types - some bold and others shyly protected under a canopy of leaves.

Everywhere there are reminders of the giant trees that once towered here before logging interests moved in.  Now a new generation of trees grow in their stead.

It is the journey and not so much the destination that the hiking experience is about, however, both Flood Falls and the Town of Hope Outlook are truly exceptional places of
 - beauty and hope.
