I’ve got a bit of a story for you today. Check out the photo and then keep reading below!
Daily Photo – Off The Beaten Path
Finding the location for this particular shot required taking a “path” off the main trail in the forest. I put the word path in quotes, because this path was really nothing more than a clearing between some saplings.
It all started, after capturing this picnic table sunset photo that I showed you all on Tuesday. I was walking back to the trail head and I noticed a small path between some saplings which shortly lead me to a marked trail that I had no idea even existed – it’s not on the map.
Towards the end of this path there was an arrow painted on a tree pointing to the left, however just beyond that arrow I could see a campsite, which made its appearance in yesterday’s daily photo, so obviously, like any good character in a horror movie, I ignored the signs telling me to turn around and proceeded forward.
After capturing the campsite shots I started walking back, but for some reason turned around and noticed that at the other end of the campsite their was another small pathway through a bunch of saplings. Once again I followed the unmarked path…and this path lead me to the scene above!
So I guess the moral of the story is that it pays to explore a bit off the beaten path when you’re looking for different scenes. However, it’s something to do carefully and in areas you know well, as getting lost in a forest is an extremely easy thing to do!
