Memories and Moments, Sights and Sounds

Hiker-dog and I hiked the sun down this evening.  This was from necessity since most of the day was spent before we could get to the trail.  I rarely hike with my iPod but, since the weather was clear, I decided to listen.  What I didn’t count on was a magical blending of sight and sound.

Dusk on the Lake Alma Trail.

As I approached “the point” the view opened up toward the south as the last glimmers of sunlight subsided. Darrell Scott and Tim O’Brien were singing Memories and Moments.  Geese flew in silhouette and called their way across the lake.  A train horn sang out a low tone in the distance. I stood in silence drinking in the sounds and sights.  After a moment, I snapped a picture with my phone and continued down the trail filled with gratitude, eventually hiking to the light of a full moon.
