Riley Woods

In my little town of Eden Prairie, there rests the Riley Woods. A conservation park, some of which hugging Riley Creek and eventually leading to Riley Lake. Finally, an awesome day – sunny and 70s, and finally all settled after moving to Minnesota. So I can get back to regular hikes, bikes and runs.

Today, no one but the creek making sounds. There is evidence of activity: deer tracks, ripples in the greened-over pond, rabbit fur tucked into the fallen wood.

I leave the trails for pieces, and search through the fallen woods. Seeing life rebuild itself, jump to the sounds of another crashing, everything continuing, ending and starting.
