The Atlantic White Cedar Swamp Trail is a wonderful trail to hike alone or with the whole family. There is so much to see! (Click on blog link for other photo.)
“The Atlantic White Cedar Swamp Trails a short and unique loop hike that even kids might like. That’s because the big attraction is a very cool boardwalk that winds through what the National Park Service calls ‘an isolated remnant of an ecosystem created after the last ice age, and normally found in mid-Canada or further north.'”

The views along Nauset Marsh Trail in Eastham are always beautiful… no matter what time of the day or what day of the year. I loved this view looking down the trail by the river. What do you think? #eastham #nationalseashore #hiking #trails #nausetmarsh
Nickerson State Park in Brewster is a fun place to hike during any season. We usually hike there when the crowds have gone home and there aren’t too many people on the trails. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
But it was a beautiful day and somewhat cooler than our hot summer… the perfect day for a hike in the cool woods at Nickerson. #nickersonstatepark #brewster #hiking #trails
I love that the Black-eyed Susan wildflowers are still blooming this late in the season. I have always loved Black-eyed Susan wildflowers as they remind me of my childhood in Connecticut and hiking the wildflower-laden trails in Colorado.
Such brilliant colors… and so many different varieties. Isn’t this one a beauty? They bloom through October, so you still have a chance to see them.
Fort Hill is one of our favorite places to take a hike. You can hike short, long, sunny, shady… just about anything on the trail. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
Here are a couple of photographs of a sunny and shady trail. Both are just spectacular! Have you ever hiked at Fort Hill? #eastham
The unique Indian Pipe wildflowers are blooming all along the Beech Forest Trail in Provincetown. They are such an interesting wildflower. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
Indian Pipe, a whitish, waxy, scaly wildflower with nodding bell-shaped flowers, is a plant with no chlorophyll which is why it is not green. It gets its nutrients from decaying matter. The flowers are about 1″ while the plant grows from 4-10 inches in the rich woods.
Have you ever seen an Indian Pipe wildflower? Such an interesting wildflower…
