I really enjoy hiking in the late winter/early spring.  There is still the quiet and stillness of winter, but there are little hints of spring’s promise popping up.


Spring Beauties, Claytonia virginica, working its way out of the blanket of leaves.


Red maple, Acer rubrum, buds bursting at the seams.


Tulip poplar, Lirodendron tulipifera, seeds ready for flight.


Fruit of Shagbark Hickory, Carya Ovata, open and bare.


Death.  Perhaps a leg bone of white tailed deer, Odocoileus virginianus?
