the trees won't disagree

they dance to their own rhyme and meter

sweet fall breezes fan their fire

displaying a quilt of fallen colours upon the trail

let the others push on ahead of us

as we whisper to eachother daybreaks desires

I have been hiking, but have not yet gone out to the mountains to see the trees. Maybe this Sunday, if they are not all burnt to a crisp!!

Sunday on Mount Palomar sounds like a very cool place to take it in

i sent u a Roam A Rama piece with a hike picked by Jerry Schad for a slightly 2+mi hike from Maple Canyon to Bankers Hill that sounds like a winner 2 Grantie

he has mighty good tips for those who love the outdoors


MsGrant Nov. 5, 2010 @ 7:25 p.m.

I have one of his books and love his column. I have done that walk and love it. It is one of my favorites because it combines the canyon with the wonderful old homes over in Banker's Hill.

If the results are always so beautiful, I'll inspire you as much as possible. Thanks, nan.

We ride our bikes up there too, going down the OB path to Old Town, up Juan Street, and all through the old neighborhoods, down through Presidio Park and back home. Good hills!!
