The Atlantic White Cedar Swamp Trail In Wellfleet On Cape Cod.

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.'”

Beautiful View From Nauset Marsh Trail On Cape Cod.

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

The Goldenrod Is Blooming And Beautiful At Fort Hill On Cape Cod.

The Goldenrod at Fort Hill is blooming and just gorgeous. Every time we stop at Fort Hill, there seems to be more Goldenrod blooming. It brings such pretty color to the fields and meadows this time of the year when everything is starting to dry up.

Pack Of Coyotes Feeding On A Humpback Whale By Nauset Marsh On Cape Cod.

We were at Hemenway Landing yesterday having our picnic lunch when we saw someone looking out in the distance with her binoculars. Hmmmmm…. what did she find? (Click on blog link for other photos.)

I got my camera and went out to see what she was looking at… a pack of Coyotes feeding on a Humpback Whale. Apparently this dead whale had washed up on the shores of Nauset Marsh a few weeks ago and then recently, with the big storm and huge tide, it washed way up on the shore of Nauset Marsh.

Three of the five Coyotes that we saw were feeding on the whale while the other two had finished feeding and were meandering out in the tall grass.

We just happened to be there at the right time. I never would have seen them without some help! Thank you to the lady with the binoculars… what a great sighting!
