boardwalk in woods

I actually took this photo not one, but two weekends ago, when I was walking in one of my favorite nearby woods. This path was flooded for most of the spring, and the day I took this photo was the first time I’d walked this way since last fall. (That’s the swampy edge of a pond on either side of the boardwalk.)

Have I mentioned I love these woods, and this path?

Whenever I can, I like to go walking in the woods. These are some photos that I took a few weekends ago, that I hadn’t gotten around to posting before now. The spring path was very muddy. Good thing I had a new pair of rubber boots (below).

This area near Walkers Pond is very swampy. I love the green of the water and the trees.




There’s also a boardwalk leading to a viewing platform directly over the pond. I appreciate views like this.

renewal – forest reclamation

forest reclamation sign

On the same morning when I took this photo, I also saw the above sign on the woodland trail that I was following. They’re reclaiming some of the area for natural restoration.

(Full disclosure: I have been know to disregard signs like this.)

I appreciate renewal of the natural world.
