Visit by Nature Woman

Today Nature Woman (Pam) made a trip out to Allegany State Park to visit and do some hiking! Even though it was cold and cloudy outside . . . . we still had a fun day hiking through the park looking for many fall wildflowers to photograph.

We visited many areas of the park including the Bova Area, France Brook, then ate lunch over at Quaker Lake, explored the Old Quaker Store Museum and then hiked the Blacksnake Trail.

We saw many wonderful wildflowers and even investigated many interesting trees that were along the trail. Birds almost seem non apparent but we did come across a few Wild Turkeys along the roads.

Pam, thanks for such a fun day and I will let you fill everyone in with everything else that happened! Be sure to visit Nature Woman’s Blog for more details on our fun day!

    Love the shot of the shooter taking fungus! Glad you had such a great day-yes kindof cool-I saw a bride in a sleeveless dress for photos and felt sorry for her. Love the blue stemmed goldenrod too

  2. Looks like a wonderful day in the park. Good thing the plants were there, at least they don’t fly South.

  3. Mon@rch, looks like a wonderful hike. And no wonder you didn’t see many birds, you O.D.’d on them on your Hide and Bird Seek!

  8. It was a great day, Tom! Thanks again! Now I have to come up with my post! I think I’ll break it up over a few posts. Your photos came out gorgeous. I wish I took more photos of the trail itself – it varied so much and is a really cool trail!

  9. I really loved two things about this post; first, the idea of someone taking a photograph of someone taking a photograph. Do your antics every end? (I sincerely hope they never do!) And secondly, reading through her journey (on her page) – and then yours (on your page.) Produced a really lesson in perspective. Very cool Monarch.

  17. I liked the photograph of Jack-in-the-Pulpit. I have been looking for the berries here on our land but I guess the birds beat me to them.
