A Trip to the Park

A few days ago, a couple of friends and I spent the morning in Cedar Creek Park. This park has a great area of wild flowers throughout the growing season. I always enjoy stopping there in the spring for the Trilliums. Here are a few photos from our trip to the park.

Spring at Phipps Conservatory

A recent trip to Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens with the Westmoreland Photographers Society brought spring to life. And what flower makes you think of spring? A tulip of course.

Sometimes I just enjoy taking a ride through the country side. And you never know what you might come across on one of those rides. On this particular ride deep in the woods on a small road I came across an interesting structure that I’m assuming is a spring of some sort. Maybe you can tell me what it is?

Directions to the place. Take the dirt road, which will turn into a cow path across the mountain. When you reach the middle of nowhere go another 3 miles and look for the flags on the fence. You have arrived at your destination. The interesting things you find while out enjoying a ride through the mountains. #sundaydrive #2eightphotgraphy #americanflag

You encounter a bridge along your path, do you cross or turn around and go back to the familiar?

Tonight we take a short journey down a path and as with all journeys decisions have to be made. Do you go forward and see what lies ahead? Or do we turn around and go back to the familiar? Really when you think about all of our “paths” have the same questions but choosing to go forward can be rewarding. On this journey we encounter a bridge, so the question arises do we cross or turn around? Well I like to think I’m the person that crosses to see what’s on the other side. What type of person are you?

As you can see in the snow there are tracks. But how many ventured to cross the bridge ahead?

It looks as though some ventured across but did they see the beautiful scenery from the bridge?

Lets continue on and see whats on the other side.

From the looks of the snow no one made the complete journey across the bridge to the train station. What a shame that they turned back before seeing how things turned out. The view was great the whole way across but this journey doesn’t end here. I have to, as all of the others, turn back around because my vehicle is parked on the other side.

If you never cross the bridge you will never know what is on the other side.
