The clouds were so pretty as we hiked along Nauset Marsh Trail by the Salt Pond. Such a pretty hike, especially early in the morning.
A few years ago, the National Park Service installed a moveable bridge by the salt pond near the Visitors Center in Eastham. It goes up and down with the tide and you can usually get across, unless the tide is extremely high.
You can see how high the tide was the amount of grass that washed up by the bridge. That is where the trail usually is. It is best to hike this trail closer to low tide or mid-tide. If the tide gets really high, the trail gets very muddy and washed out in some places.
It is one of our favorite hikes as it is so diverse… along the edge of the salt pond, across another bridge over the salt marsh, up to an overlook where you can see Nauset Marsh out to Coast Guard Beach, through the woods and then back on another bridge over a little pond in the woods. Each part is so pretty.
Have you ever hiked this trail?
Yesterday morning was so pretty on the Nauset Trail by the Salt Pond and Nauset Marsh in Eastham. The forecast was cloudy but we managed to see a few bits of sunshine poke through the clouds.
I thought this photograph was so pretty with the sky so blue. What do you think?
Within a half an hour, there was no sun to be seen.
Most of the photographs that I post of the Nauset Marsh Trail are of the trail and Nauset Marsh or the Salt Pond. But a good part of the trail takes you through the woods along Nauset Marsh which are so pretty.
I took this photograph of the trail which leads you from the Salt Pond by the visitors center, across a bridge over the marsh and then up a hill, through the woods to a beautiful overlook of Nauset Marsh.
Have you ever hiked the Nauset Marsh Trail? So pretty, don’t you think?
I love the Nauset Marsh Trail in Eastham because each and every time I hike it, I see something totally different. Today it was the simplicity of it… the puffy little clouds with the reflection of the trees and huts on the river. It was so quiet… not a soul around.
So pretty, don’t you think?
It was a gorgeous Sunday to be out in the waters looking for oysters at Nauset Salt Pond in Eastham on Cape Cod. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
Yesterday, called “Oyster Sunday,” was the first of 3 Sundays in the fall that people can get a “Oyster” license and search for oysters in designated areas at Nauset Salt Pond and the river leading into it.
Looks like fun! This guy was walking back with his bucket full.
Have you ever participated in Oyster Sundays at the Eastham Salt Pond by the visitors center?
