Saturday, October 1, 2016

I rolled out of bed and decided to put on my rain gear to trudge into the woods for the first morning of archery season in New York. The rain was refreshing as it dripped off the brim of my hat and ran down my cheeks. The woods were eerily quiet, and the darkness beckoned me to continue toward the Rock.

When I arrived at the Rock, I was in my happy place. Although the rain steadily pelted the leaves on the trees above me, my mind was quiet. My adventures always seem to bring me back to the Rock. I’ve gone there to be alone. I’ve celebrated some great moments with family members and friends while resting my back on it. I’ve created lifelong memories in the area surrounding it, and today was no different……………………it felt good to be home.

I didn’t see any deer today, but I enjoyed every minute of my time in the woods. I won’t have time in the coming week to get back in the woods, but I will be back next weekend. Hopefully, the weather will turn and begin to feel a little more like fall. I’m beginning to get excited for the events that will transpire over the next two months.
