Rugged Fall Trail

This is not actually my pic, but I have traveled paths like this.  This particular one was provided by my favorite desktop wallpaper place called Your Daily Escape at www.away.com.  A  travel site, they have fabulous pics from all around the world, but mainly from wonderful North America.

Trail in the Sierra Nevadas

Here’s what Your Daily Escape has to say about it:

An Empty Fall Trail

Granite cliffs, three-story trees, and 14,000-foot mountains might make hikers feel Lilliputian in the Sierra Nevada landscape. But that is exactly the point. Escape city life on the 211 challenging miles of the John Muir Trail, named for the founder of the Sierra Club, to see three national parks, two wilderness areas, and countless rugged vistas. In early September, the summer crowds and mosquitoes have dispersed, but the days are still warm.

Certainly part of North American grandeur and eminently worthy as an entrant in the weekly photo challenge of “Path.”
