Beauty along the Trail

The trek along the Katy Trail has
become such a passion in my life.
Even though the miles are tiring and
it can be very hot and humid some days,
I am so satisfied that I did it!

I think you can see by the scenery I've
shown so far that there is so much beauty
along the trail that it is awe inspiring.
That's not to say that there aren't plenty of
woods with little to see and mosquitos to
swat, but the gems along the way make
up for it!

This butterfly was laying on the trail
and he was so beautiful that I stopped to
take a picture and zoomed in close.
I then edited it so that you could see
him even closer and I love that you
can see the surface of the trail.

"And do not be conformed to this world, but be
transformed by the renewing of your mind, that
you may prove what is that good and acceptable
and perfect will of God." - Romans 12:2
Have a beautiful day!

Beautiful scenery Twyla! Don't you notice much more around you "on foot" ? Glad you had your camera, that butterfly is beautiful!
How many miles do you walk at a time?

Thank you for sharing all this beauty with us! The close up on the butterfly is amazing. Cooler weather is supposed to arrive tonight, so hopefully your walks will be more comfortable this coming week.
I just read someplace that if you put a little dab or two of Vicks on your clothes that it keeps the mosquitos away. I don't know if it works or not, but I'm going to try it. I'm a mosquito target.
