Greetings in Christ!
Last time I posted it was the beginning of summer and now I return at the beginning of Autumn (my favorite season by the way).
Just wanted to share some photos I took today.
Eldest daughter told me about a place called Spiderweed in Middletown (Ct), so I thought I'd check it out and maybe get some early fall foliage shots.
Along the drive I had to stop and get a shot of a beaver den I spotted along the road way.
After driving passed Dripps Road leading to Spiderweed, I finally found the unpaved road leading to the trail. Spiderweed offers around 150 acres of wilderness and 3 miles of hiking, the first 1.25 is straight UP. If you've got bad knees, this is not the hike for you.
Reaching the turn in the trail at the plateau, this is what I saw...
And then these...
Thought it was really beautiful, but I was surprised by the lack of animals. I had expected hoards of scampering squirrels and chipmunks and crows in the trees. Nothing. It was very quiet. Not usual for my walks/hikes in the woods.
There was no one else there but myself, my daughter and my senior citizen father (he did great hiking up there!). We were quiet as we were all photographing the area. Still, not an animal in sight.
I hope you are all doing well and are healthy. Hope you enjoy my photos.
