Memorial Day 2011

Here's the bridge a year ago Memorial Day week-end.
Hello Shireen and family.
Overcast and humid, in the high 70s.  Wind out of the east
so trip back was easy.
Remembered my father today at Stephanie's memorial.

St. Patrick's Day: Bald Eagle sighting

Today was the first day back on skates since my accident September 5 of last year. Notice I now wear a helmet.
Two bald eagles were sighted near the Lock Seven Road parking area to the path. I promise the link to pictures

of them soon.
Here's to the first of many trips this season.

Spring 2011

So good to be back on the path.  Everything is awakening after our very long and severe winter.  One of the worst in memory.
The first thing I noticed out for a walk today was the honking.  The pumpkin fields of the fall are now filled with geese.  Many of them flying from field to field.  Ducks, too.
Also saw two red-tailed hawks circling by the parking area.
The old bridge to NiskaIsle is gone and work is ongoing to remove the boulder dam built to build the new bridge.
Lots of walkers out and Tom.  He rollerblades, runs and now UNICYCLES!!

"Son of Halloween" Lishakill Trail Edition

Green slimy moss, trees shedding skin, Sleepy Hollows, a troll on a bridge,

rotting stumps. Good thing it was daytime.

Special Halloween Edition

3:30 It was one of those last days of color autumn has to offer, with mild temps and plenty of sun. I wouldn't have been surprised if Ichabod Crane came loping down the path, nose in book. My pictures are mostly of the scenery from lock seven road to the NiskaIsle bridges. The new bridge is scheduled to be completed in about two weeks with demolition of the old next spring. Also note the hawk circling. I hope you enjoy this posting of the fall scenery.
