Pretty treesMo' pretty treesPretty trees are why I went
*climbs pretty trees*Pretty leaves, plus a cool rockI seem to have a fondness for stones
A stone dam in a ditchA flower in Jeff's front yardThe road may end, but that didn't stop me...

On Saturday morning I climbed beyond the ROAD ENDS sign, and this is what I foundAnd yes, I chose this title for a reasonWe hiked the entire expanse of land
We brought hatchets and scythes in order to cut a pathOr maybe the path was already thereWe followed the path singing songs of adventure and wanderlust
I liked the leaves on this treeThe path leads into the woods, and I worry about the possibility of deer with malice on their minds

Somehow, this tan-colored tree frog was spotted amidst the ground coverWe gazed upon nature's lovelinessWe marveled at how skinny trees can be
We scampered down steep pathsAnd hoped we didn't get shot by deer huntersWe saw the tallest, prettiest Christmas tree ever!
The sun shines down upon our beatific countenance (or something)There were no animals in the woods, or so we thoughtYou can see how much I like pretty trees
Deeper and deeper into the abyss we goDid this tree make any sound?Isn't it cool how a plant can grow on a rock?
An old hunter's stand thing that has fallen to the groundThe ladder used to climb into the standEntering the heart of darkness
Not only is it real - it tried to kill me!This is the deer right before it charged at us, antlers blazingThe deer stopped in mid sprint to decide which of us to gore first

The much loved (and now legendary) stone tableMany hours were spent arranging the stone tiles in the perfect combinationAll I wanted was to get a good shot of a black squirrel, but I was rudely denied
