Changing of the Guard

Changing of the Guard


On this beautiful summer day we rose early, packed our picnic lunch, and headed out to explore this amazing land all around us. My husband and I chose a new area to explore and before long we found ourselves in a breathtaking meadow filled with purple iris in full bloom. We chose our picnic spot next to the creek, the cows grazing nearby. Later we were off exploring again, I am always amazed at how we can explore the forest and always find some new treasure.

As the sun began to drop and the shadows grew long we decided we better head back. Coming around the next bend we were stopped dead in our tracks, our eyes transfixed. We had happened upon an old abandoned stable and corral all aglow with the day’s last sunlight and the moon rising over the tree line. How breathtaking, this “changing of the guard” and here we are to witness the magic. Who were they that cared for their horses and cattle in this rugged and picturesque land? Why did they leave, where did they go? If only the walls could tell their story… we are left with only our imaginations. And yet maybe that is the best part, the mystery of it all.
