Well, I guess I've got my head up in the pine trees...AGAIN! This photo was taken on the Lilly Trail that is part of the Shaver Lake Perimeter Trails. It is an easy rated trail with very little ups and downs and makes for a peaceful stroll in the forest. I believe I could take this trail every day and never get tired of it.
As you can see by the tire tracks in the photo, it is also a bike trail. I haven't taken my bike on it yet but I plan to do so in the near future. I've also seen trail horse riders out here enjoying the cool mountain air and the fresh smell of the pine trees.
There's something about a trail leading into the forest that is magical to me. It's like walking into my own fairytale. The story is different every time I go and it gets more and more imaginitive. I grew up exploring trials just like this and making trails where there were none. This, to me, is a part of who I am and how I connect with my inner child.
After my venture into the forest, where I solve all the World's problems in my head, I come back to reality for a Hut Burger at the Hungry Hut and maybe a glass of wine at the Trading Post in town. Ok, sometimes more than just a glass. ;)
If you love Shaver Lake, the mountains, the pine trees, simple hiking trails and relaxing, playful photography, I am the photographer for you. Hit me up and I'll take you on the trail and we'll get some absolutely STUNNING photos of your family or your high school senior.
