The night before heading out on a weeklong backpacking trip in the Laurel Highlands in Pennsylvania I was restless in a second floor room in our B&B. The night was beautiful and I look out onto an expanse of field between the home and the mountains. I was mesmorized by the seemingly continuation of the fireflies and this starry night.

Hay Bales are so much a part of the landscape in the fields around our home. They add such architectural interest in the design of a painting.
Earlier on this hike it had rained and the going was quite muddy splashing our calves as we trekked but as we entered an open area the clouds were breaking up and we hoped that sun was in the forecast.
