It was a spectacular fall day at Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. Each trail had incredible views and the fall colors were vibrant!

I took this photograph on the bridge on Silver Springs Trail overlooking the pond. Love that reflection in the water!

Gorgeous, don’t you think?

As you drive into the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary on Cape Cod, you see a “Slow Turtle Crossing” sign. There are a lot of turtles at the sanctuary and the staff and volunteers do an incredible job helping the Terrapins during the off-season.

These two turtles were lazing in the sun on a log on Silver Springs Pond.

There are still plenty of Cabbage White butterflies flitting about this fall on Cape Cod, especially near the marshes.

We saw these two butterflies at Nauset Marsh the other day. I wasn’t sure why one had 1 spot and the other had 2 spots, only to learn later that the female has 2 spots.

They loved the yellow wildflowers growing in the marsh.

Pamet Trail in North Truro offers stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean. This is one that I just love! You can even take a long walk along the beach which goes for miles. When we were there, a little seal was swimming along the shore.

Pamet Trail has three different trail options: one to the breach of Ballston Beach, one to this ocean overlook and another one to the Bog House where cranberries were harvested years ago.

All three trails are gorgeous and great for the whole family!
