Our foliage-appreciating outing with our city friends was to the Indian Ladder Trail.
It was quite different from our last visit six weeks ago. There was a lot less water for one thing, so taking a picture like this was possible.
Also, there were many fewer leaves on the trees, so some new views opened up.
We were pleased to see the bridge repairs after the damage we saw last time.
But some things were the same - happy, uncomplaining kids, beautiful nature and lots of steps.
And of course, we saw it afresh through the eyes of our guests and enjoyed their company - all very good for the soul.
