Autumn Hike - Ryan Park

On one recent sunny day this past Autumn, took a long slow walk in the Ryan Park area near Gardens at Waters East.  It is a nature preserve about five miles from the gardens.  As you will see;  lots of beautiful trees, trails, hills, leaves of color and birds migrating as the season changes.  Nice way to spend an afternoon.

You are welcome to come along.



Very interesting mushroom growing on on tree.

Snake hiding in the leaves.

Colors here and colors there.

Puff Ball mushroom, about 14 inches across.

Late Summer Sunrise

Late summer sunrise


Sunrises are always so very beautiful even on days that are not perfect.  There is something about waking up to see the new day.  Here are photos capturing one day in the life of a new morning – taken at the end of August 2022.

 Good Morning
