Today is another amazing day here in southern Ohio. It’s Indian Summer. Near my house is a bike trail that spans from the Kentucky border to Lake Erie. The trail has many different names and crosses many lovely small towns.
South Lebanon is just a few miles from my house and the trail runs next to the little town. I took a short one mile walk on the trail sandwiched between trees and along side the Little Miami river. The scenery was a mix of barren, green, yellow and orange trees. There was a light breeze and leaves were falling like gigantic snow flakes. There were a few people about. Some were running, some walking and some with their four legged pals.
On one side of me, the light was shining through the trees adding a pattern of sun and fallen leaves onto the path. On the other side, just passed a line of trees and down a steep embankment, the Little Miami river played me a song of rushing water over rocks. It is indeed one of my favorite tunes. It was a magnificent walk. One in which, you think to yourself, “Isn’t it great to be alive.”
