These photos were taken after we'd been hiking around Hacklebarney for a few hours. By then it was getting a little nippy and a little chilly so most of the parents had headed home with their kids and the sounds of silence could really be heard. I really enjoyed walking around this park even more toward the end of the day.

That's ok. We'll try to go even harder after your recommendation.

I'm glad you three got a chance to visit together. I'm to one for big crowds either...we'll have to keep that in mind when we plan for it.

More shots to inspire my streambed & pond project...too bad I don't have three or four times as many rocks as I do! I know I can't compete with nature, but I want som semblance of in our own backyard.

What an awful dreadful surprise to see that they had naturalized (if that's what you'd call it) there.

There were also pretty little nooks full of ferns dotting the park.
