Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

photograph of trees reflected in a shallow creek

I had some other ideas for this week’s photo challenge but I was walking through the woods and the reflection of the trees in this stream caught my attention.  Perhaps too literal a treatment of this week’s theme but I liked the color and the stillness of the water at this spot.

Cyclists Yield to Hikers, Hikers Yield to Bears

Photograph of a sign indicating cyclist must yield to hikers and hikers must yield to bearsI came across several of these signs when biking a trail in the mountains of Southwest Virginia.  I suppose one must know his place when out in the woods.  I wonder, if bears could read would they be instructed to yield to anybody?
