Scavenger Hunt Sunday

a long abandoned birds' nest in a hawthorn tree.  The wild birds have flown to more Southern climes.


at the entrance to an apartment complex (near the bike path)

This bike path follows an old railway line and is close to the Little Miami Scenic River.  Most of the trail is in the Little Miami State Park.  75 miles long, the trail travels through 5 counties.  It connects to 4 other trails.  In 2008 it was the longest paved trail in the US.  (I don't have current statistics.)
(PS:  I live in the Cincinnati, Ohio area.)

Scarlet leafed trees almost glow against the green grass and the blue (ish) sky!  These trees are next to the bike path.  See it?

a classic scene this time of year--bare branched trees silhouetted against a blue sky dotted with clouds
