Well another summer has come and gone. It started as usual with kids throwing the book bags down for the last time for the school year and heading out to Pennsylvania for a family vacation. The last few weeks seemed to have been a blur and even though I didn't post very much I did get to spend time with the family and there were hiking and fishing trips. Trips to the beach and the pool. The summer was very mild here in the northeast which made it that much more enjoyable. Now with school just a couple of days away I though I would post a few highlights of a summer that's all but in the books.
One of the many striped bass I managed to land
Trout fishing on a small mountain stream.....what could be better?
Bella doing some snapper fishing....old school style
A nice "thin blue line" beauty
Hiking at Split Rock, Mohonk Preserve
August blooming cardinal flower
Hike around Lake Minnewaska, Minnewaska State Park
One of the first of many Long Island snappers
Golden rod......one of the first signs that the big wheel of seasons is about to turn again
