8/10/10 Walden-Parke Preserve
Heat and humidity have returned so we decided to do something close, short ( 1-1/2 hours) , and early. We drove to Walden-Parke Preserve, part of the Bangor Land Trust, which is less then 4 miles from home. This is a nice woods walk and we did the loop trail and a bit more of the abandoned railroad bed. Very few deer flies which had driven us out of the woods last time we were here. Here are a few of the things we saw:
Wild Blackberries. Very tasty and Kelley approved.
White Admiral butterfly
Queen Anne's Lace
I don't know this flower
A pond that gave Kelley a chance to cool off.
Another flower I don't know the name of.
