Gorgeous Day For A Hike At Fort Hill On Cape Cod

It was a gorgeous, somewhat spring-like day here on Cape Cod so we decided to hike the Red Maple Swamp Trail at Fort Hill on Cape Cod. The views are spectacular!

Phil took this photograph as we were finishing the Red maple Swamp Trail and heading out to the trail around the meadow. You can see Nauset Marsh and then Nauset Beach way out in the distance.

So pretty!

Great Trail At The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary On Cape Cod

The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary on Cape Cod has a lot of great trails to hike. This is one of our favorite’s… through the woods, across the salt marsh and then out to the beaches, as long as it is not near high tide!! 🙂



Beautiful Red-Breasted Merganser At Wiley Park On Cape Cod

I’ve been looking for a good photograph of a Red-Breasted Merganser all winter here on Cape Cod. And then yesterday when I was hiking at Wiley Park I saw something swimming in the kettle pond near the shore. I quickly got my camera out and got ready. I quietly walked down the little trail to the shore and stood behind a tree. As soon as I saw him get closer, I clicked away. And, as soon as he heard the click, he flew away!

But I think I got a pretty good photograph. What do you think?

Phil and I always said that this diving duck was having a “bad hair day!” Cute little guy, don’t you think?
