I was on another trail

This entrance to another unknown was marked in a non-environmental-friendly way. It was alright to me anyhow though used bottles were being hung on branches of trees. MyJourney would still carry on.

A peep from the outside never gave me any hint on the inner world. In order to fulfill my adventurous desire I had then put myself inside. Here I came!! Yes, I started to, and could not stop myself from day-dreaming again: I was Indiana Jones without a whip.


The beginning part of the trail involved some twists and turns among the woods. These allowed me to see nothing far away on my descending path. Twist and turn can never tell me the true story. I could only see trees, and again trees, in this limited view. They were so many, I was confused which one I should talk to without prejudice, until I saw this tree which bore a "snaky-look". Talking to trees are very fun if you really want to, although we may use different languages, and this involves of many guess works. We chatted while I was still keeping my pace, I understood then there were surprises waiting for me upfront. Surprises? Yes, I loved them!

As I traveled further in the midst of buzzing sound of insects, I was surprise to realise my surroundings were sort of familiar to me. I was on the rocky trail which would lead me to the mini dam at the end!

Now my friend posed again in a same old look in a warm morning. This marked the end of my adventure and weekend routine.


(After all the twists and turns, the truth reveals that there are ample wonder around. And I was right when I got myself out from the maze of jungle trails).

Mei Teng said...

Is that a small lake in the last photo? So nice to be near nature isn't?

Mother Goose said...

A new trail is always a tremendous thrill. And then... it's not "new" anymore, and you have to find another one!

Ratty said...

Your adventure looked like a lot of fun. Even Indiana Jones would have wanted to be you this time. Finding a lake or pond at the end is always good at for an adventure.

Icy BC: Those oddness in the jungle always create some mysteries. This is the best part of the day.

Kirigalpoththa: Winding path never tell me what to expect after the turn. Wonder, wonder and wonder after one another. Great.

Mei Teng: It is a dam which I think has been abandoned. It has retired.

Mother Goose: It sure has definite character and help to landmark my trail.

betchai: You must have some good experiences in the jungle as well. Giant trees, winding trail and hanging lichens, what a adventure!

Sharkbytes: You are awarded with the twisted vines. They are yours now.

Heather Dugan: It is no more new but surprises can never end, in the jungle. More to come.

Ratty: Really? I shall meet him at the entrance next week. Hopefully he will bring along his whip too.

i hope you don't mind if i come visit every now and then...

your blogsite is very refreshing...

I very much enjoyed going with you on your hike. I really liked your photo of the snake tree. Thanks for visiting my site.

Sounds like an adventure into the heart of nature. The bottles, I wonder if they used them to mark their trail. The thick snaky vines were a pleasant surprise, and the dam looks quite serene and almost camouflaged with all the greenery around. Great pics Rain! Thanks for sharing.

Norfadli: Thanks for your visit.

CH: It is great to know you were there this morning. Enjoy yourself.

cherie: I do not have any reason to mind if you come visit every now and then. Welcome abroad. Let talk to me now and then besides talking to trees.

George: You are my newest friend before I go to bed. See you again.

Harumi: Hopefully you are feeling right now!! If you are able to breathe in the jungle, you will keep the doctor away.

There are always those twists and turns that we need to experience before we see the light - deep huh :)
Your photos are fantastic.

Harumi said...
