Looking Upward Along the Chesapeake Trail-SKYWATCH FRIDAY


Only as high as I reach can I grow,
 only as far as I seek can I go,
 only as deep as I look can I see,
 only as much as I dream can I be.

Do stop by and visit all my friends at SKYWATCH FRIDAY and share in the holiday spirit. Skywatch Friday was created by Dot, and perfected by Tom and is now hosted by Klaus. Skywatch members are Wren, Sandy, Sylvia, Louise, Fishing Guy, and Klaus.


This shot was taken on the Chesapeake Trail just outside Kilmarnok, Virginia. I walked along the trail and enjoyed the solitude of being alone under the beautiful canopy of trees reaching high into the sky. Enjoy.
