It was a great day for a hike in one of the prettiest State parks in Pennsylvania. Jacobsburg has flowing streams, cool woodlands, and sunny fields and pastures. A variety of plant life grows in all the environments in the park, attracting a diversity of birds and other wildlife. I heard cardinals, chickadees, towhees, phoebes, and woodpeckers.
I love the rebirth of Spring and the revitalization it brings. Some say that everything in the physical world is a reflection of something in the spiritual world. If that is so, then Spring to me is rebirth, new life, new possibilities, and new directions. Today was a beautiful start to that season.
Flowers catching bright sun rays
A little rivulet forms a small waterfall.
I love these hemlock forests.
A beautiful stream flows through the park. We watched some little birds nesting in some high rocks along the water. I think they were phoebes.
Stopping for a moment on the bridge
Finding some serenity in Henry's Woods
Spring is bursting forth everywhere! I love the juxtaposition of seasons, last year's leaves provide a foundation for this year's new growth.
Sunlight catching ripples in the stream
