Looking For Treasure

When I went for my five mile hike in the woods this week, I was actually glad that it was so chilly for a few reasons.  First, the chilly, damp, overcast morning made me move a little faster to create body heat and secondly, I saw NO ONE.  

What I did discover were a few treasures throughout the woods that I have here at home like Trillium, Adders Tongue, fiddleheads, and lots and lots of wet, soggy earth.  


Theirs:  If you know what this is, please tell me.

 No, I wasn't expecting to discover the similarities between the trail through the woods and our "space" however, I must say that when I saw the "Thank You" painted on the rock sitting perfectly on the moss covered stump, I was glad that I was part of this Earth and humanity.

seeing, saying, and sharing...

The "Thank You" made my heart swell, JP. You came upon a lot of treasures along your trek.❤️

You saw lots on your hike but the painted rock was the best.

Five miles with no-one sounds like paradise to me! Very jealous!

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne (ps: how are things in your neck of the woods?)

Nice that you were able to get out and go for a long walk without people being nearby. I really dislike wearing a mask when outdoors and with no one around there's no need (in my opinion). That said we're planning to take a long walk in a nearby park later today and hopefully will find some treasures.

Such lovely treasures to discover on your walk! Especially the "Thank You" rock!

Your plant photographs look great. It's nice to see someone left a "ninja pebble" / painted rock for others to see. I walked around Bethel, CT a few weeks ago, and someone had left a few of those at each statue by the library. Good idea to go for a walk when the weather was less than ideal, to increase your chances of not seeing anyone else: I hadn't thought of that, but I like that plan.

I know you monitor Bald Eagle and Osprey nests in your area, but do you get information about other nests within CT? I saw a brief news story about a Bald Eagle pair being photographed in a tree at Longshore Golf Course in Westport, CT, and it made me wonder if they had a nest in there somewhere, too. It's an ideal location, right on Long Island Sound, with plenty of fish to find and eat. :-) I'm thinking of making a "road trip" to that location, to see if I can find and photograph them, but I think the golf course is open, too, so I won't want to risk human interactions. :-(
