This wander started the night before, exploring Google maps in the general area I planned to go. I found a road that looked to have some promise. How did I determine this you might ask? Well, it had a few things going for it, it was off the beaten path, it was winding road and it was surrounded my ponds and lakes. This had to be a winner.
I got up early, before rush hour hit its peak and made my way from the South-East to the North-West of the city and beyond. I had my GPS, my map book and a plan in my head and all three needed to work together. Before looking for my magical winding road, I thought I’d make a stop at Big Hill Springs Park. The falls here are always pretty but it seemed almost devoid of wildlife this morning except for a couple ducks that didn’t want any part of me taking their picture. The sound of the running water was as beautiful as the waterfalls themselves. This is a sound that has a way of calming the mind for me like no other. I remember thinking you can’t bottle that sound, you have to be there. One other person was in the park enjoying the calm; he had found a quite spot across the water and it appeared he was doing his morning devotional. Can’t think of a better spot to try and connect to a greater being.
