I finally had my camera with me as I walked past these surprisingly pale pink maple leaves along one of the trails I run in the back woods. Kind of a unique shade… Thanks Deb for the ID—it’s a mapleleaf viburnum!

Morning Observation:

About Today’s Photo:

The Mailbox Trail beaver pond is full once again. The dam blew out during tropical storm Irene turing the pond into a soggy meadow. But beavers being beavers, they rebuilt, and the dam is just a foot or two below where it was before (it’s a tall dam too—a good 6-8 feet high!)

About Today’s Photo:

I love beech trees. Their smooth “elephant skin” bark is a pleasure to touch, and their leaves last long into the fall—often clear through winter—gradually bleaching from green to paper white. These trees are up past the beaver pond off the Mailbox Trail. Still worth a visit even on a rainy day!
