A spider web bejeweled with dewdrops. A daffodil popping up unexpectedly through the snow. A sudden parting of dark clouds to reveal a glowing orange sunset.
Sometimes we stumble onto small things that bring great joy. Nature’s stealth mission is to surprise us with these heart lifting revelations.
Hidden gems appear of their own accord, if we keep our eyes open to see them.
This week’s Hike Notes, Lily Pond – Golden Gate Park, introduces a little treasure we stumbled onto after long years of walking right past the entry path in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park.
Please feel free to share. If you’re not able to take one of these Northern California hikes, hopefully you can enjoy the photos! Check the Home page for the broader background story. Click Insights/Hike Update News for inspiring reflections.
