I lived in my hometown my whole life and occasionally get to see some off beat location decades after I visited them as a kid. During high school I would walk two miles to play DnD at a friend house. To get there I had to cross one of the older (and largest) cemetery in my town. Just beyond its border was a ravine that I had to follow a path down and up before I reached the road my friends' house was on the other side of the woods.
The place where I crossed the stream in the ravine never ceased to amaze and inspire me especially in mid afternoon when the sun is hitting the area at the right angle. To me it looked something out of Middle Earth and got me pumped up to play ADnD.
A few days ago my family wanted to get out of the house and take a walk. I suggested the area as the last time I visited it was a decade ago when my kids were younger. The walk was great except at the end where we a turn and the trail turned rough when it dipped into a tributary of the main stream. We had to work our way down into the main ravine and it turned the hike into a bit of an adventure.
But I took some photos and hope they inspire you as much as they inspired me.
