Sometimes we look at sights in nature but don't really see. While hiking in the woods the other day, it became a realization that we need to open our heart and eyes to see the beauty of the simple things in nature with each season. There is so much order and purpose in His creation. God has given us awesome beauty in this world to see and enjoy... if we would but stop to see and feel it. Join us as this blog is about stopping to see the real beauty around touch and feel it... "Through the Lens".

Finishing our Hike in the Woods


As we rounded a bend we came across an area with a lot of camellia bushes and thought we would share some of the flowers that are now in bloom.  It was a pleasant surprise to find them on our hike.







            I backed away to take a picture of a little creek bed falls and was able to get this picture of Gerri texting or reading a text from our son.


As we ended our hike, we came to an area that was created about 10 years ago in the gardens.  Although there were no azaleas in bloom at this time of the year, the view is still very peaceful and serene.


Thanks for tagging along as we finished our hike.

A Walk in the Woods

Today Gerri and I went for a hike on one of the trails at Callaway Gardens Resort.  It was sunny, windy and cold, but the hike was very refreshing.  


Along the way we passed a small creek bed with neat little waterfalls.



As we were following to the creek to where it emptied into the lake we came across a tree that a beaver was working on taking down.  It was interesting to see how well the beaver can accomplish it’s task.


We hiked our way over to the Butterfly Center to walk through the climate controlled area for the butterflies and we saw quite a few beautiful butterflies.





On the way back to our car, we walked through an area of the gardens that is full of blooming camellia bushes.  Tomorrow, we will share some of those pics as well as pics of the rest of our hike.

Thanks for letting us share our hike and sights with you today!
