Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy, No. 1, part 2

This is a continuation of yesterday's post on the Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy headquarters located just off Route 29 on Skippack Pike near Schwenksville, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. It would be an excellent place for a picnic followed by a hike to explore nature.


The above bridge and path takes one through a swampy area over a small feeder creek to the East Branch of the Perkiomen Creek. Birds and wildflowers abound in this woods.

I think your photos of paths are some of the best! This is no exception.

Nice photos. I like the fields of Mustard. I see a lot of them on way to Nangal from Delhi

Hi, san nakji. Thanks. That photo I think did turn out particularly well.

Thanks, navin harish. Good to know that you appreciate them. And thanks for relating it to your country. I learn a little bit that way, too.

Hi, tai. Those wooden plank paths are fun and even a bit artistic.

I love the picture of the bridge. It's my path to a new life. It's a symbol of the new journey I'm going to take. I'm walking towards another place; towars my new life. LOL...

Hi, rubysoho! That bridge picture is special. It can be a symbol of so many things. And if you can use it as a symbol to make your life better, it makes me glad.

The wooden bridge, the paths and the flowers are beautiful. I marvel at the beauty of nature, and of the God who put it there.

For me the white flower is a kind of "viburnum"; and I'll soon write about rape on cergipontin. I really love these yellow flowers.

Hi, abandoned in pasadena. Isn't it great how God thought to make our world so beautiful for us!

Thanks, cergie. Glad you enjoyed it.

Hi, sage. The swamp path photo is kind of magical, isn't it?
