The Cary Senior Center has a Healthy Hikers meeting once a month. I carpooled with 3 others from the center to Harris Lake County Park which was about a 30 minute drive south of Cary, NC. We took the Peninsula Hiking Trail. Early on our walk we spied a bald eagle fly by within 30 feet of us over the lake. We also saw several American Coots, and a great blue heron.
There were plenty of birds singing and something that we suspected might be frogs chirping in the ponds.
There was an old homestead and grapevine from the 1800’s. A cellphone audio tour was available for the trail.
Had to go to Denver on business but had a chance to finally visit Rocky Mountain National Park. Took two hikes, one 3 mile (near Bear Lake) and one 4 mile (Wild Basin). It was lovely as the trees are starting to change color.
A Monday hiking group had decided to have a walk from the Korean War Memorial today. I took the Metro and bus to the starting point. Paul gave a brief talk about the memorial and then the group hopped on the harbor commuter and we went to Locust Point where the UnderArmour Headquarters is located. We checked out the immigration memorial and then took another boat ride to Fells Point. We began our two mile walk along the harbor, followed by lunch. Here’s a few photos from today’s excursion. I didn’t bother to take any photos of the mother Canadian goose with her two goslings, sorry.
It’s been almost thirty years since the last visit!
