I've done this many times, but it's been several years.
Actually, more than several years.
The fall weather was absolutely gorgeous!
I knew I wanted to take a few more fall photos before all of the leaves fell to the ground.
I drove my car, parked, and started walking at the bottom of the "old road" up Mill Mountain Greenway.
Of course, I was loaded down with my camera, bag, tripod, cell phone, but oops, I forgot my water bottle. Oh well, I wasn't going too far up the back road.
The further I walked, the prettier the scenery became!
I was by myself, with plenty of bikers, and walkers along the way.
I seriously had NO intentions of continuing my upward climb.
The more I walked, the more I wanted to walk.
Oh look, there's the moon!
And before I knew it, I was at the star!
..... and I needed water. (which was provided at the welcoming station!)
.....and I had to walk back to my car!
Today was a great day!
I walked 5 miles.
