Yesterday, I felt like riding to the Chattahoochee Nature Center. And, so I did!
On the way, I stopped to watch the Chatt river and the umpteen canoes and kayaks on it.
Next, I continued on the Roswell Riverfront Trail toward CNC. This bridge is under Roswell Road. You can see the river in the distance, perhaps. I wanted to get closer to the river and also check out some of the graffiti, but it was way too muddy to ride through. I would have lost my balance and would have had to stop on the mud, in order to avoid falling. Not a great choice, so no close-up pictures of the graffiti, yet.
Another view of the trail, under the Roswell Road bridge. I love the view here. The arch is quite lovely, I think.
Next, up, the CNC itself. The notice 'No Bicycles' does not mean you can not get to the CNC on a bicycle. Bicycling is not permitted on the protected trails.
Can you spot the Bumble Bee?
Lots of information on these boards near the entrance to the CNC.
More information about the CNC and its occupants. They have quite a variety of birds here, including Barred Owl, Red Tailed Hawk, Vulture, Turkey Vulture, etc. There is even a cute little Beaver, who is very funny.
Brahma used tantra and transformed himself into a neatly folded entity, which the officials at the CNC were delighted to see. So, Brahma and I, both, got to go inside the premises, for a chat and use of the facilities. I did not explore the CNC on this particular day, but I did over another Sunday.
Shaggy and I drove to Cedar Hill yesterday so I can get turn in my Texas State Park Pass voucher and get official pass from the TX Parks Office at Cedar Hill State Park.
We stopped at the Joe Pool Lake to check it out. It was a hot, yet beautiful day here in Dallas. Shaggy didn't appreciate the heat. He hid under the bench. While this photo is not very crisp, I still want to show it so y'all can see the devastating effect the burrs had on Shaggy's face, which you can see in the next photo.
After we got done with the official business, we decided to go hike the Duck Pond Trail at the Cedar Hill State Park. Little did I know about the dangers of taking a Old English Sheepdog walking in a trail abundant with the infamous Sand Burr. The result: Those evil things got all over his face and he started rubbing his face with his paws and the burrs from the paws got transferred to his face and it was just a really horrible mess.
I tried pulling them burrs off but in vain. There were way …
That's right. You read the title correctly - this post contains an assortment of photographs, not necessarily in any special order.
I will give you a minute to guess what the first photograph is of :) In case you haven't a clue, you can see my little blurb about it at the very end of this post. I had the day off Friday, so I did rest a bunch and spend time with my family. Black Kitty took a nap with me and was even friendly after I trimmed his nails :) Sometimes, reflections can be very interesting. I love looking at reflections on many objects/surfaces, such as this reflection of a fence on a motorcycle's headlight. Just in case. The reflection in the first photo is one of a church. The photograph was taken by clicking at the television, while we were watching a British Murder Mystery show. If you enlarge the photo, you can see lot more details.
