Hawk Mountain Sanctuary

without comments

Today’s photo du jour is from one of trails in the Hawk Mountain Sanctuary The sanctuary is the world’s first refuge for birds of prey and an international center for raptor conservation. Founded in 1934, the 2,600-acre mountaintop preserve offers incredible scenic overlooks, eight miles of trail that wind around the mountain, connecting to the world famous Appalachian Trail near Hamburg, PA.  After you visit the sanctuary, spend a small fortune at Cabella’s (not because they are overpriced, but because they have so much cool stuff for the outdoor enthusiast).  Hawk Mountain is worth the trip (about 2 hours from Philadelphia), and small fee to enter. Bring a good pair of binoculars (available for rent at the visitors center) to see the spectacular views, and of course many of the birds a prey that congregate in this area.

Monet In The Reflection

without comments

I felt like posting something different today, I’ve noticed that I have posted a lot birds lately.  I can’t remember where I took this photo, but I loved the reflection on the water and ripples in the water.  It reminded me of an impressionist painting; I always loved how they were able to capture the beauty in nature without trying to recreate in their paintings.
