Springtime at Salt Fork Lake

Gentle breeze blows across  Salt Fork Lake causing rippling waves to lap the shore.  The deep blue of the lake reflects the clouds and trees as their leaves appear in the most gorgeous shade of spring green.

This is the perfect place for meditation. Peace seems to reign as the world comes alive with Spring in all its glory.  Time to think about the future, relive pleasant memories of the past, and enjoy the moment. There is a feeling of freedom as the worries of everyday life seem to lift away and are replaced by calm within.

Others have the same idea as a picnic table at the edge provides a good photo setting for a young family as they too enjoy the beauties of Mother Nature.

Along the bank, a father and his young son are enjoying some quality time fishing together quietly.  The bond they build will last for a lifetime.

Water calms the spirit so this is a great place to relax all through the year.  When you need a place to get away from it all, take a drive to the dam at Salt Fork Lake and find some peace.


Spring Time in Ohio

Hop in the car with me and let’s take a ride through the back roads of Southeastern Ohio in Guernsey County. Springtime is looking pretty great here.

Today for the first time, notice those beautiful but pesky dandelions blooming in full force.  They look like an army of yellow flowers over the hillside.  Isn’t it nice to see some bright yellow on the banks instead of that snow we had all winter long?

Hard to believe that the lilac bushes are blooming so early this year! Overnight they went from green to purple with only the beginning of blossoms so far.  What a beautiful fragrance!  Let’s stop and cut a few branches to take home with us.

Forsythia bushes cast a golden glow to the roadsides as well.  There is a barn with a row of the bright yellow forsythia along one side of it.  Must be a lady farmer living there.

Travel with me as we visit many new and beautiful places on the back roads.
