True Fall came today

Living in the Low Country of South Carolina

and working from home, the transition

into Fall seems to be the most notable for me.

The day when a beach bum has to put on long pants

marks the true end of Summer.

~~~~~

This is Campbell’s Covered Bridge in Landrum, SC.  

It’s the only remaining covered bridge in the state.

The grounds surrounding the bridge are a

county park where you can picnic

or go wading in the stream.

~~~

October has been very warm this year

and we’ve had no change of color in the trees yet.

Happy Fall!!

Bald Eagle

Out in the middle of nowhere

live the eagles,

and ospreys,

and kingfishers,

and herons,

and me!

Unique View of Pilot Mountain

December 28, 2011

North Carolina has a very unique natural feature

called Pilot Mountain, which appears to rise out of nowhere.

Native Americans were said to use it as a landmark

and called the mountain Jomeokee –

The “Great Guide” or “Pilot”.

~~~

This view overlooks Lake Larissa,

a man-made lake in a beautiful setting.

I’m lucky enough to work just a few

minutes away from this area.

~~~~~~~

Click on the first photo to enlarge and

see if you can find the ducks on the lake,

~~~~~

Click on the second photo to make out the unusual

shape of Pilot Mountain a little better.

~~~

Click here and here to see more photos taken of Pilot and

the view from the overlook at the state park.

The trails at Pilot Mountain State Park are also

part of the NC Birding Trails.

Virginia’s New River

January 27, 2010

This area is called Foster Falls.

It’s on the New River in Virginia. 

There may actually be falls around the bend,

but we had biked about 9 miles already. 

Looking forward to going back and finding out.

~~~

Can you find the sunbather?

Colt with Mother

Here is the colt with his mother.  She is beautiful also,

so large, and a deep brown with huge hoofs.
