  32. Must be a treat to be able to visit this Park. Your sky shots are great and love the first one.
    RYC: It is now 40% contained; however, there was another one in Palos Verdes 5pm our time caused by a car on fire, but was contained right away. Lets hope we get a cooler weather.

    Aloha my friend, and yes: bikes are domesticated beasts that don't belong in a wildlife sanctuary ;-}

  49. Denise, I have been to Huntley Meadows many many times. Franconia School used send the first graders on a spring field trip to Huntley Meadows. It is pretty anytime but I like it most in October when the leaves have turned and the birds are migrating.
