Views at Nockamixon State Park

Yesterday in the early evening hours I went hiking at Nockamixon State Park on the Bedminster side branching off of Kellers Church Road. It was a beautiful sunny and breezy evening. The weather was so warm that I chose to ware sandals and shorts. And it was good that I did so as many sections of the trails were muddy and covered with large water puddles. Below are photos of some of the sights I saw along the way.

I love the blue in the first picture.

Wouldn't one want real shoes when they come in contact with water or mud rather than getting their feet wet and dirty or am I the weird one of the group? :-)

Thanks, murf. I don't know how most people are. But I love the feel of earth and water against my feet. If it were safe and socially acceptable, I would love to go barefoot all the time. My feet want to be free. :)

Murf said...

I don't know how most people are either but I have to wear socks. The thought of getting my feet dirty makes me cringe.

Hi, murf. A few days ago on an all news radio station I heard about a scientific study that says there is a certain type of bacteria in soil that makes people happier when they get their feet dirty in it. And I agree that when I get my feet dirty in soil, I do get happier. Now what do you think of that? :)

Like Murf, I too like the first pic, but I also like the feeling of mud between the toes. However, I'm mostly a sandal, flipflop kind of guy!

I always love seeing the forsythia, Tim. But that evergreen branch takes the cake!

Yay, spring! :)

Tim Rice said...

Thanks, sage. So you love close contact with the earth, too. :)

Thanks, moi. That flower attracted me, too; but unfortunately was too low to the ground for me to get the angle I really wanted.

Thanks, merili. God knew how to make a beautiful creation.

Thanks, photowannabe. Glad you could join me on my hike online. :)

Thanks, ginnie. That evergreen branch photo fascinates me, too.

Thanks, kevin stilley. That photo is beautiful.

Thanks, ava. Welcome back! I hope you are doing well.

Thanks, mikaela. Those two pictures pull me, too. :)

Thanks, choochoo. I thoroughly agree with you. Yay, spring!

It's particularly difficult to take the blue color of periwinkle and you took it successfully
It's difficult too to get a pretty neat violet
Yours is pretty nice

I like the grey water like an iced jelly

Beautiful! Looks like you have much of the same vegetation we have here - periwinkle (one of my personal favourites), forsythia, wild violets etc.
