A Morning's Visit to Lake Nockamixon, part 2

This past Tuesday morning I visited Nockamixon State Park on the Quakertown side, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Below are some photos of plants and landscape sights from that hike.

What a great place to hike. It looks like a great place to just loose oneself.
All the photos are great, but I especially like the last one.

My favorite is the second one. I like how you look through the branches.

I going to take a stab and say that your walk and some of these pictures were taken around 8:30 a.m. Am I close?

I love the tree with the red thingamajiggys on it. Nothing like pictures of water on a nice fall day, too.

Lovely as always. Are these photos taken in PA? I've never heard of this place Noxamickin? Did I even spell that right???

Thanks, photowannabe. It is a great place to hike and lose one's self.

Thanks, faye pekas. It is a great view.

Hi, murf. Some of those pictures were taken then and some a bit later in the morning.

Thanks, fred. The tree with the red fruit on is one of my favorites, too.

Thanks, trailady. These pictures are taken in Pennsylvania. And no, you didn't quite spell the place name right. It is Nockamixon. It's located near Quakertown, Pennsylvania if you want to look it up on a map to get a general idea.

This place is going to look amazing in Winter! Will you be able to come back when it's snowing? I can't wait!

I see you aren't posting on Shutterchance, Tim. Our loss. :(

But as always, your pics are great, walk after walk!

Hi, san nakji. I think you're right that this place could be amazing when there's lots of snow. We'll have to wait and see if it gets cold enough to snow. We've been having an aweful lot of abnormally warm weather.

Thanks, mreddie. It is a good place to recharge one's emotional batteries.

Thanks, sage. I think many place names around here originate from Native American place names.

Thanks, ginnie. I would love to continue to post on Shutterchance. But it is a matter of time priority. Back in November, I started dating a very dear girlfriend. She takes priority and she has been a great blessing to me.

Hi, merili. Thanks for coming by!

Thanks for taking me along on your walk again. I really enjoyed it. The bulge on the weed in earlier post has a small white worm in it. No disease - just borrowing a place to stay. My DH collected the weeds and harvested the worms to catch fish. Very good bait. So happy you have found someone special. Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year.

It was such a long time I did not come and visit your blog ?
Beautiful pictures as ever
I particularly like red berries (in France we do marmelade with wild rose berries)
