Our weekend walk, Aug 31

  I am linking up with  Our World Tuesday 

September 2, 2013

For my post for Our World Tuesday, I am sharing some of the scenes from this weekend's walk.  We walked on the fireroad that we call the Pine Tree loop, it maybe a mile long.


Along the trail, beside the tall pine trees we saw lots of colorful berries and some leaves changing into their pretty fall colors.

Autumn is a second Spring when every leaf is a flower. A quote by Albert Camus.


I am sure the birds are happy with all the berries we were seeing.



Of course while I am walking I am listening for  different birds, I could hear some loud Bluejays, a Wood PeWee, Cardinals, a Northern Flicker and I am sure some Warblers were high in the treetops.


I believe there were two Northern Flickers, but I was only able to snap off a few shots of this Flicker. It is pretty with the red on its head and the spotted chest.


Along the trail, we saw different kinds of ferns, they all look beautiful to me. After working all week, I am happy to get outdoors for a walk and to enjoy everything that is nature.

One touch of nature makes the whole world kin. A quote by William Shakespeare.


As always, I hope you enjoy my post and thanks for visiting my blog. I always appreciate your comments.

Join in on the fun and for more wonderful photos please visit Our World Tuesday

 Thanks to the hosting group of Our World Tuesday: Arija, Gattina, Lady Fi, Sylvia, Sandy and Jennifer.  I wish everyone a happy week!

The Pine Tree Loop is a great place to unload the frustrations of a work week. Those berries are a beautiful red and the ferns a lovely green.

love the ferns and pretty red berries, but the flicker steals the show. love their 'floating' spots on their chests.

Thank you for taking us on this lovely walk Eileen. Your pictures show the beauty, everywhere is so lush and green. The flicker is a beautiful bird, you have captured him well. Thank you also for the tip on the road in Glacier. We will be sure to take it. Stayed in Helena, Montana last night and have about 200 miles to go. Have a great week :)

Phil Slade said...

A lovely quote from Albert Camus about leaves to go with your lovely pictures Eileen. I never heard that one before but how true and observant it is. Goos shots of the flicker too. Enjoy the rest of your week.

Before I forget I have to tell you that your header is beautiful. This looks like a great walking trail with all the berries and birds.

Reena Walkling said...

Such a beautiful walk.

Pondside said...

That was a lovely walk. I liked seeing the Northern Flicker - we have them here too, but they are notoriously shy. I've never managed to photograph one of them. They like the arbutus trees when the berries are out.

Mia McPherson said...

Such a lovely walk Eileen!

Tammy said...

Such magnificent tall trees! The Flicker is a beauty!!

ladyfi said...

Joyful said...

Beautiful Eileen! The colours are so rich and lovely.

Chris Rohrer said...

They look like Northern Flickers to me:) They are colorful birds.....here we have mostly Red-shafted but I guess there are Yellow-shafted(much more rare). And then there are the Gilded Flickers that live only in the Saguaro cactus. Similar but different.

Barb said...

I love the delicacy of ferns. You caught great photos of the Flicker. Those berries will be good bear food. I'm seeing lots of berries in our woods, too.

Kusum Sanu said...

Nice post! Must be a great walk!

Quiet Paths said...

That path looks like something I would absolutely love.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

This trail looked very cool and lush with foliage, Eileen--very different from most of the trails I walk here in Colorado.

Maria said...

These are beautiful and I love the quote by Camus!
