The Boardwalk On The Red Maple Swamp Trail On Cape Cod.


The boardwalk on the Red Maple Swamp Trail at Fort Hill is lush this summer. It’s a great hike over the swamp and you’re sure to see lots of wildflowers and hear the diversity of birds singing in the trees.

It’s one of our favorite hikes!

Beautiful Little Canada Mayflower Blooming on Cape Cod.


It is the season for the Canada Mayflower to bloom on Cape Cod. I have seen it on many of the trails in the past few days. If you hike Fort Hill, you can see it on the sides of the boardwalk. It is so pretty and delicate. (Click on blog link for other photo.)

Canada Mayflower is a small woodland plant, only growing 3′ – 6″ in May and June. Its 1/4″ flowers look like miniatureĀ  bottle brushes next to bright shiny leaves.

When the Mayflower blooms, you know that summer is right around the corner! Have you ever seen oneĀ  this year?


Pretty Reflection On The Nauset Marsh Trail On Cape Cod.


The Nauset Marsh Trail is so pretty, any time of the day, any day of the year. There is a little pool midway on the hike which is right next to Nauset Marsh. I loved the reflection in the water.
