Destinations On the Way to Your Destination

Sunday afternoon, I was walking along this trail; my camera filled with photos of Flora and Fauna and my heart filled with the wonderful experience of being there in the middle of it all; the warmth and scent of the air, each sight that I saw, each sound that I heard, each berry that I ate :)
The turn, up ahead, intrigued me. I had no idea what was beyond the bend, having never been on this trail before. I had no particular 'destination' in mind; I was just walking to wherever, or until whenever. All I knew was that each step of the day felt like a wonderful little destination in and of itself!
I was reminded of the truth of enjoying the journey in life as I'm on the way to wherever it is that I'm going. I may be headed toward some great place in life, but if the destination is the only thing I focus on, I will miss so many great 'destinations' that can be enjoyed along the way.
Interestingly, this was the last photo I took before heading for home.
