Easter Hike

Monday, April 21, 2014

After enjoying a breakfast out together as a family my DS joined me on a hike through one of our local parks soaking up all the sunshine and nature. Despite this park (Chenango Valley State Park) being practically in my back yard, we don't visit it often enough. My son did the honor of snapping some lovely pics which I'll share. Not sure how the panoramic shots will appear, but will give it a whirl!

First is the area around golf course (a panoramic shot):

Here are some other pics from around the park:

I'm standing on the little footbridge in the distance near the lake in this pic:

And here's a lovely panoramic of the lake where we dawdled to soak up more of that wonderful sunshine:

Hoping everyone had a super Easter filled with Spark and special times!

    Thank you for the pictures! I have been to that footbridge. It is so pretty in that part of the world. What a treat to vicariously enjoy your hike in the woods.

That is wonderful to get out and enjoy such a beautiful setting! (and oh so green -getting a little green envy here!!)
My sister, Mom and Daisy and I got to go on a morning hike before she left for home. Was finally warm with sunshine, but the ice, browns and mud are getting old ;)
Have a great week!
