The land was stunning! The farm was started back in 1636 by Samuel Appleton and it probably looks almost the same as it did back then. There are some old crumbled foundations on the property that must be centuries old.
The land was deeded to the Trustees of Reservations in 1998 by the Appleton family and can now be enjoyed by everyone. It has been kept a working farm and even has a store for its beef, cheese and yogurt.There were plenty of happy cows.
I don't think this guy was happy to see us!
The wildflowers were beautiful.
Birds. I hand the camera over to Jim when there are birds since I usually can't make them out in the trees!
Eventually I will invest in the camera lens attachment for better bird watching photos.
Do you see some serious camouflage in the center of the photo?
Then a red winged blackbird decided to kick the crane out of its territory!
This walk was absolutely beautiful.We only explored a small part of it. This is another one of those places that would be an amazing autumn walk!
I hope you enjoyed this nature trip with us. Thank you for stopping by! ~Val
