Phil and I were taking a new hike for us on the John Wing Trail in Brewster, which is on the grounds of the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History, when we saw this mamma deer and her new little fawn. It sure didn’t look very old.
I’m not sure who surprised who more as they were right on the trail. We stood there and clicked away while they checked us out as well.
So cute, don’t you think?
Each year about this time, the Wild Irises bloom at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. They are easy to spot off the trail as they are so colorful and grow fairly tall.
Pretty, don’t you think?
If you’ve never walked the boardwalk on the Red Maple Swamp Trail at Fort Hill in Eastham, put it on your list. It is always spectacular and always something new to see. Phil and I walked there early the other morning and it seemed almost mystical with all of the sounds of nature.
Have you ever walked the Red Maple Swamp Trail?
There are a couple of trails through the dunes at Coast Guard Beach where you can walk to the salt marsh and follow it out to Nauset Spit and then to the ocean. It is a really pretty walk. We frequently do it in reverse… we will walk down the beach to Nauset Spit and then pick up the trail by the salt marsh on the way back. There is always something new to see.
I loved the clouds in this photograph. What do you think?
There is no shortage of turtles on the Silver Spring Trail at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. The trail goes around Silver Spring which has plenty of logs out in the water. Each one is teeming with turtles trying to get on board!
Such a fun hike for the whole family!
It is such a treat this time of year to see the wildflowers starting to bloom along the trails. This one was blooming at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. There are so many things to see there from wildflowers to wildlife, to birds, etc. Just take one of their many trails and you never know what you will see!
