You probably have fond childhood memories of imagining yourself running off into your favorite fantasy world. Even as adults, we still love to do that — especially with places as immersive as The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, or Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. At a Mississippi park, The Bridge to Terabithia might come to mind. One particular boardwalk hike takes you over waterways and through winding forests that will make you feel like you've stepped right into the magical land found in the storybook's pages.\nFound in the Sam D. Hamilton Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge, the Bluff Lake Boardwalk trail is an easy hike that takes you through some downright enchanting views.\nTotaling about 1,000 feet, the trail takes you over the reflective watery floodplains of the refuge’s bottomlands, giving the sensation of walking right on the water’s surface.\nLush landscapes filled with towering oaks and bald cypress trees canopy the trail, lending a particularly magical air to the scenery in fall when the foliage is bursting with color. You’ll spot tons of wildlife too, like adorable river otters, woodpeckers, bald eagles, and herons.\nThe trail ends with a stunning view over Bluff Lake under a covered outlook. You can even use the binocular telescope to scout out the surrounding flora and fauna.\nView this post on Instagram rus ⤵ Ok, so how was Starkville? Well, it was confusing: I am 100% Northerner, and I was waiting for the seasons to change but they never did. We are just stuck in October and go back to summer again, sometimes even several times during supposedly winter months. Is it January now? Why does it feel like March to me? . . . Так как было в Старквилле? Ох, Старквилль не уставал путать меня: я на сто процентов с Севера, я все ждала смены сезонов, но они никогда не менялись. Мы просто застревали на Октябре после чего снова возвращалось лето, иногда даже несколько раз за так называемую зиму. Что там сейчас, январь? Что-то похоже на Март, если спросите меня!
