8/23/16 Newman Hill-Hinds

Pleasant morning in the lower 70's with a little breeze to keep the bugs down. We got rain and cooler temperatures yesterday.

We took a little different route today as Kelley wanted a particular trail we hadn't done in a long time. There was water for Kelley and wildflowers for me, though wind made closeups difficult.


Part of Pine Pond - for some reason she stayed next to the shore and wouldn't give me a clear shot


Poorly exposed but....

a bit of lichen on a tree branch

Don't know this one

  Small pond next to Black Pond ( not on the map)

Locks on the gate across the old rail bed

Too soon

more flowers I don't know

Nice outing. Kelley did well and we had the place to ourselves. 1  3/4 hours


  1. My favorite today was the lock on the gate. What an interesting shot!
    Sounds like you had some marvelous weather. And I have to disagree-John, I think it IS time for least in my summer-weary mind.
    Have a great day in the woods

    1. Thank you Sue- you may be right about fall - back to 85 for today and 87 tomorrow. Enough heat.
