Follow The Path To Miner's Falls

While on my trip to Michigan's Upper Peninsula this fall, I had the opportunity to visit Miners Falls. The falls were great in their own right, but on the walk down to them from the parking lot I noticed how the path made an "S" shaped curve......and we all know to never pass up an "S" shape!

Walking along the path into the forest it felt sort of magical, so, in processing, I brightened the pathway to give it a "Follow The Yellow Brick Road" appearance. Because the trail dips down about halfway through the frame, you lose sight of it and really can't tell where it leads to. I felt that this too added an air of mystery.
