  • Wilmer Park, Chestertown, MD

    Wilmer Park, Chestertown, MD, 2023-05-06

    Today’s skies were so beautiful! Today’s excursion took us to Chestertown. The skies were beautiful and Wilmer Park was nice as it always is. It is a simple park with a playground, pavilion, and walkway along the water. I think I like it because the water makes it a very calm location. Pictures of our…

  • The Big Tree

    Patuxent Research Refuge – North Tract, Laurel, MD, 2023-03-11

    On this trip to the refuge, the sky was so beautiful that I didn’t even want to convert these photos to black and white. We saw a hooded merganser. We visited the big tree and just walked to get in a couple of miles. I never tire of this location which is just down the…

    Back in 2009 we visited the Philadelphia Museum of Art and happened to be there on the opening day of Cai Guo-Qiang’s (@CaiGuoQiang) exhibit, Fallen Blossoms. It took me a while to find the name of the exhibit and the artist. Here is a short video of the outside event. T Michelle Moore

  • Old Tree on the Howard Community College campus.

    Howard Community College, Columbia, MD, 2023-01-01

    Howard Community College has a beautiful campus with a trail that circles two ponds, the track, a garden, and a grove of trees which includes one of my favorite trees. A building is under construction and the cement mixers were blocking my view! The tree has also had a limb break off, so I was…

  • Branch on pond.

    Patuxent Research Refuge – South Tract, Laurel, MD, 2022-12-29

    We took a very short walk at the Patuxent Research Refuge – South Tract. The trails were closed for hunting. The majority of the trees were bare and perfect for photos. Lake Reddington was frozen which made a nice backdrop for the lonely limb sitting on the ice. Patuxent Research Refuge – South Tract,,…

  • Turkey Vulture sitting on observation tower rail.

    Patuxent Research Refuge – North Tract, Laurel, MD, 2022-12-27

    I have to admit that the Turkey Vulture is sort of cute. We have seen them over the couple of years that we have been visiting the refuge and they always seem to be in pairs. And when they are soaring, their wings look pretty awesome. Location: Patuxent Research Refuge – North Tract, 230 Bald…
