Weekly Photo Challenge: Wonder

I’m participating in the Post-A-Week 2011 challenge.  This week’s challenge is “Wonder.”

I was filled with a sense of wonder today as I walked along the Mississippi River at Hidden Falls Park and Crosby Farm Park.

I loved caves, tunnels, crevices, and passages as a kid.  I love wondering who would live in each of those places.  The folds in a blanket, the space between two rocks in the garden, or between the lilac bushes and the fence.  I would wonder who would live there, what their story would be.

As I walked the path at Hidden Falls, I was struck by the same sense of wonder, at the hole in the sandstone, the twists of the tree roots, the willow tree bending over the river bank.
