9/17/15 Newman Hill

Going to be another hot one (mid 80's) so we got an early start and picked a route with lots of water.

Before we left the parking area a dragonfly landed on my shirt.

 I put my hand beside it and it climbed aboard.

I set it on a flower and we headed for the first pond

Gone to seed

 This section of the old rail bed leads to a beaver pond.

and another swim

These were very small and I didn't get sharp focus but here they are

Crown Vetch

 Can't resist the Queen Anne's Lace

A full load of pollen

Kelley did well and the hike was pleasant. Was glad we had started early because it was less comfortable at the end. !  1/2 hours 


  1. Boy this hot weather is hanging on... I wish I could store it up for winter.

    1. Yes, it won't be long until we are complaining about the cold rather than the heat
