This summer saw some really awful temperatures in NYC, so when it looked like we were getting a lot of days in a row of triple digits, I went up to the mountains. Sadly the heat followed me to a place that didn’t have any AC. It did have a fan though and was at least down in the 80s. So that was helpful. As seen in an earlier post we did get some hiking in. I thought I’d also share a few of the images I took while wandering around the parents house and the surrounding area.
A windmill blows in a tiny flower garden.
A view around the corner, with some excellent clouds.
A barn hides in the trees.
A pond beneath the clouds.
A wide angle view of the maple farm.
My parents’ home, hidden in the trees.
Garnet Lake – a short drive away.
More of the lake from the banks of it.
Looking through the trees to the sun over the lake.
The mountains on the other side – and I’m in the lake.
The sun shines on the water.
The water gets an interesting tint as the sun sets.
A view of a portion of my mom’s garden.
Close up of a flower while trying to catch a bee.
Look at the beetles all over this flower.
Here, I’ll add some color to help.
A dragonfly lands.
A big ole garden snake sees me.
A pastel flower view.
Next week: A walk through the conservatory gardens in Central Park.
