The day started out fairly cool, but quickly warmed up under pure blue skies and bright sunshine. And the mosquitoes sure were out in force today in the woods.
I wish I knew my dragonflies better, but I don’t need to know their names to enjoy their beauty! If anyone out there can id – feel free to leave me a comment. Sometimes, they even rest long enough to capture a photo of them.
Stephanie noticed a shadow pass over and she looked up and spotted an adult bald eagle. It circled higher and higher until it was out of our sight.
This park is wonderful to hike in especially when the temperatures are cooler – even on a cold, but sunny day. One of my fondest memories of this park is when we held a family Thanksgiving Day picnic with my sisters.
