Beautiful Bluebird At Fort Hill On Cape Cod.

We were taking a hike at Fort Hill the other day when I saw some movement up in one of the trees. I looked up and the tree was full of Bluebirds. How cool! This one stayed there long enough for me to take a photograph and then they all flew away.

Beautiful bird, don’t you think?

Hiking Fort Hill On Cape Cod In The Fall.

Even without the summer wildflowers and butterflies, Fort Hill is a wonderful place to hike during any season. There are still plenty of birds to see and the views from the  trails are breathtaking.

I loved this trail with the gorgeous clouds overlooking Nauset Marsh. Have you ever hiked at Fort Hill?

Vibrant Red Winterberries For The Holidays On Cape Cod!

I loved these bright red Winterberries along the boardwalk over the swamp at Fort Hill. They remind me of the holidays season with the red berries and dark green leaves.

Have you seen any red berries along the trail this season? So pretty, don’t you think?

Hiking The Forests On Cape Cod!

So many of my friends are so surprised when I tell them that we hike in the forests on Cape Cod and that there are quite a few trails to choose from. They all think that, if you live on Cape Cod, there are only beaches.

This photograph of one of the forests at Nickerson State Park was so simple, yet so pretty. Have you ever hiked on one of the forest trails on Cape Cod?

Beautiful Northern Mockingbird At Fort Hill On Cape Cod.

All summer long, I kept looking for a good photograph of a Northern Mocking, but to no avail. I didn’t get any photographs, never mind a good one. (Click on blog link for other photo.)

And then the other day, we were taking a hike at Fort Hill and there  was a Northern Mockingbird perched up on a branch. We got out our cameras and clicked away. He sure was ready to pose,  flitting from branch to branch, for a long time.

Here are my two favorite ones. What do you think?

Old Water Tower At Nickerson State Park On Cape Cod.

It’s really cool to see this really old water tower on one of trails in Nickerson State Park. There is a fence around it, so you cannot go near it. It is near the back part of Little Cliff Pond and Higgins Pond.

I looked online for some information about it, but couldn’t find any. Does anyone know anything about the water tower? It would be interesting to know its history.

I thought I’d re-post this blog with a new photograph, hoping that someone might know some of its history. Any historians?
