Adorable White-Tailed Deer And Her Little Fawn On Cape Cod!

261 views

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?

 

Love The Boardwalk On The Red Maple Swamp Trail At Fort Hill On Cape Cod!

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?

 

Beautiful Lilies Of The Valley Along The Trails On Cape Cod.

It must be that time of the year for the  Lilies of the Valley to bloom. They are so beautiful. We’ve seen so many of them on our last few hikes. They are such a delicate little flower with such a pretty bell-shape.

I took the first photograph on the Doane Rock Trail heading out to Coast Guard Beach and the 2nd photograph on the Nauset Marsh Trail before you get to the overlook of Nauset Marsh. The 2nd one looks like a whole garden of Lilies of the Valley.

So pretty, don’t 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!

Gorgeous Purple Dead-Nettle Wildflower At Fort Hill On Cape Cod.

This beautiful purple wildflower,  Purple Dead-Nettle, is growing along the sides of the trails at Fort Hill. It grows low to the ground and the flowers are only 1/2 – 1″ so it might be a bit hard to see.

Purple Dead-Nettle, which has irregularly shaped flowers,  blooms from now through September. I was so surprised to see how exquisite it was when I saw it blown up on my computer.

Gorgeous wildflower, don’t you think?
