Indeed a beautiful place. Very clean and green. I love nature and camping as well. We have it usually in scouting.
By the way, I followed you in Google connect and Networked. This is one way to keep in touch. Hope you do the same

Looks like a great area to visit, Joe... Did you go into the wildlife area???? Bet there are some great BIRDS there--along with lots of other interesting wildlife.

Can't wait to see more from Sn Toy.

Wow! That is the color GREEN! I love the shot of the dilapidated house covered in wild vegetation...awesome shot on that one, especially.

A great series of shots of what looks like a really great place. However I wouldn't want to camp under such circumstances myself :)

The bygone house in the 2nd photo is so wonderful - a kind of a special shot I would say. It sure has a lot to tell this little house :)

It would be surprising if that area weren't full on this Holiday weekend! Very nice pictures.

I posted to Scenic Sunday for the first time this week.

That's a beautiful place to wander around...an archery range...how cool is that! Hopefully, they'll put it in. I wonder if this place is full of mosquitos in the evening...it just looks to perfect that it has to have one drawback!
