Yesterday afternoon at Nockamixon State Park

Yesterday afternoon was the warmest day yet with temperatures in the 80 degrees Fahrenheit. It was a beautiful day for hiking and I returned to a different section of Nockamixon State Park.


A lone crocus just off the trailhead parking area



A beautiful piece of moss



A rocky overhang



A large overview along the hiking trail



A rocky ridge line



A rocky lake shore line



A ruin in the forest

It looked like the crocus was trying to hide - great pics. ec

The circle of the moss is a great effect!

Land leading into water (like the overhang) make great photos I think.

I am such a big fan of your hikes, Tim, because you have a WORLD out there to explore in all its majesty. These pics take my breath away, especially the ones with the rocks!

I've been looking for flowers in the woods the last couple of days, but I haven't found any. It's so warm and sunny, I'm sure they'll be up soon:D

Thanks, mreddie. The crocus does look rather almost hidden, doesn't it?

Thanks, san nakji. I like the overhang photo, too. :)

Thanks, photowannabe. It was a great day for hiking.

Thanks, deals on wheels. I think that flower is magical. ;)

Thanks, moi. I'm glad you enjoy hiking with me via my blog. :)

Thanks, ginnie. I do have a world or worlds to explore in my hikes, don't I? :)

Hi, choochoo. I have only seen a few wildflowers at this point. But they'll be coming before long. :)

I love moss.....well I guess I love anything green....your pictures are great as usual.... I gave my son my old fuji (it's only about 2 years old)...and he reminded me of you, he went to a park (side cut) and took all kinds of pictures....of some waterfalls, and trees, stumps.....and even some daff. flowers...and some old brick ruins of something or other......

Such great pics. So important that we have public parks for everyone to enjoy. Nature cleans our minds and feeds our spirits. I miss my FL sunshine.

I couldn't tell quite what the ruin is. What do you think it was once a part of, Tim? A house?

Tim Rice said...

Thanks, judypatooote. Your son does sound at least a little like me. :)

Thanks, sage. It is nice to see spring flowers starting to break winter colors.

Thanks, diyadear. It was a wonderful hike!

Thanks, katie. I, too, am appreciative that we have public parks in which to enjoy nature.

Hi, murf. I don't know for sure what it originally was. It might have been a part of a house or barn. It almost reminds me of a fireplace.

It's so difficult to get a blue sky onn a picture even if the weather is sunny
A white sky is not so gorgeous
Happily now it will be easier
You manage that very well here

I had ten days vacation and you posted many pictures during that time...
