Spring Nature Series Part 3

Another week has come and gone and I have more pictures from my Spring Nature Series Part 3. These pictures were taken on a gloomy rainy Sunday and yet still portrays so much beauty. Trees are beginning to bud and grass is starting to grow. Nature is being re-born and restoring itself after a long and harsh winter. 

These set of pictures on a trail that has been cleared by family members who grew up and hunt on the property. I love to hear stories about Brian and his uncles, cousins, siblings, parents and grandparents. Stories about how they used to cultivate much of the land when it was a working farm and hunt when it was the season.

Let’s get to some pictures…

I love the dark trunk and bright green moss that grows on the fallen tree.

This tree was completely uprooted and has become a home for some type of critter!

There certainly isn’t a shortage of moss growing in this forest. The thick velvety green moss is thriving! I’ve read that most mosses like humid and shady conditions!

This tree just makes me think of The Sorting Hat from Harry Potter!

Interesting that this moss is white!

This was a LARGE Red Oak that had been uprooted! It just lifted and fell over!!! I wonder if anyone heard it fall?

One thing that amazes me is the size and magnitude of the giant rock/boulders that we see in the bush! Here is another…

I love to look at the different layers of rocks!

And one more…

Have I mentioned before that I love rocks!!! I am fascinated by them. Where did they come from? How did they get there? Most times you can figure out their origin from a rock face, mountain or cliff nearby but many are just … well… there with no obvious answer! HOW DID THEY GET THERE???

We discovered a friends tree stand, deep in the bush!

 I love this picture of an acorn top. It is nestled in the fallen foliage.

Something has definitely taken up residence under this Yellow Birch! Look at those impressive roots!

This Beech tree looks like her has multiple legs!

At this point, we meandered onto a path that was previously a Skidder trail and discovered the most beautiful water fall that made its way down a rock bed  and was breathtaking!  The water looked like it was dancing down the rocks!

Take a second to enjoy the view!

Now we could have gone all this way without some fun on our Can Am so here are some fun videos from that day!

If you haven’t seen Parts 1 and 2 of my Spring Nature Series, you can find them here and here.

Hope you can take a moment and smell the roses. It’s good for the mind, body and soul!

Until my next post,
