The other day I was walking in the woods. And I came upon the strangest leaf.

"That's no leaf, that's ten dollars!"

Not a pot of gold but a lucky find nonetheless.

Tuesday Walk
is the name of an online community on my blog home of Live-Journal that I use on random Tuesdays to catch-up and/or update the blogesphere with pictures from my walks, hikes or otherwise outside adventures.

Today's entry is from...
slatts' KAYAK DIARY
It should be TURTLE not TULLY Lake
...as evident from MJ's picture taken on Sunday June 17th. What a GREAT paddle. And early enough to beat the mad rush of pops who got canoes instead of neckties for Father's Day!

Tuesday Walk
is the name of an online community on my blog home of Live-Journal that I use on random Tuesdays to catch-up and/or update the blogesphere with pictures from my walks, hikes or otherwise outside adventures.

Today's post is simply to illustrate how the weather of late in my neck of the woods can go from something where you might leave foot prints in the snow like we found on our March hike through the woods around the Quabbin Reservoir...



...to something where you might leave the same in the mud, like we found in the woods of Northfield a couple of weeks ago.



One minute, it's "Open the window!" Next, it's "bring some wood in for the fire."

Ah, Spring in New England!

A place it don't belong! No, it's not another rewrite of my latest graphic-novel magazine project. But it does seem like an appropriate title for this "out-of-place" item we found on our hike Easter Sunday in the Northfield Mount Hermon School woods of Northfield.







I wonder if this car's nickname was "Titanic?"

On Saturday, March 24, KJ, Wyatt, Allison, MJ and I hiked in the Wendell State Forrest. The locals know Wendell to be the home of many folks of the "counter-culture" persuasion -- hippies. So, it should be no surprise that we found in the Wendell State Forrest...



a tree-hugger!

With temperatures reaching into 70's today on the first day of Spring, it's hard to think there was snow on the ground only a week ago.



And there wasn't much of that but only in the most shadowed part of the woods surrounding the Quabbin Reservoir where we found these small animal foot prints.



No, as we headed along the path, all signs of winter just disappeared.





And then we reached the bluff where we could view the reservoir. Yes, it appeared even two weeks ago that Winter was done.

Happy First Day of SPRING!

Tuesday Walk is the name of an online community on my blog home of Live-Journal. There hasn't been a post on it since 2008. I will change that today. But I'm also going to use Tuesday Walk and random Tuesdays to catch-up or update the blogesphere with pictures from my walks, hikes or otherwise outside adventures.

This first entry is from Monday, February 20th.



One sign said this...



Another sign said this. I saw no rattlesnakes and...



I wouldn't call this a castle. The locals call it Hermit's Cave but stories have it that it something more like Hermit's Cabin. Either way, it was a great day for a hike and a great trail. And me and my hiking friends: KJ, Wyatt, Allison, Deb, Melissa and Willie had ourselves a great time.



Here's a view from the top of the Millers River, a river that runs along a section of Route 2 that I often travel on. It's interesting to see things from a different perspective.



Here's a close-up of that stream by the rusted Rattlesnake Mountain sign.



Another view of the river through the woods.

A GREAT Day for a hike!

Tjornið, the lake downtown. The water is heated to keep this section ice-free. This area grows and shrinks depending on the temperature. The lake goes through a cycle and freezes and thaws many times during the winter. The school across the street uses the ice for PE during the winter.  I counted 90 swans last December. Ducks and geese are plentiful. Tourists and locals feed the birds.





Swans walking on ice.

daydreamer


When I was out enjoying the afternoon sunshine yesterday, I spotted these crocuses that had escaped from the garden and gone for a stroll on the boulevard. I just love naturalized flowers.

snapdragon


The wind is cold and blustery today but it's blown away the rain clouds. Everything looks fresh washed and the moss is a lustrous, brilliant, spongey green. When I zoom right into this picture, I can imagine losing myself in the meandering paths of the Emerald City.

p.s. The icon is from a photo taken today of a hardy pink snapdragon, braving the elements.
