Last Post About Leaves?


This is what happens after Fall Foliage Show, trees get naked and trow their leaves all over the place!

There are  still some leaves hanging tight on the trees, for now, but the rainy and windy days are
 coming, so this might be the last post with leaves on the trees after all.

These pictures are from Sandy Bottom Nature Park at Hampton, Virginia.











It's very interesting what the city of Hampton have done on these 456 acres! 
At one point this place was a garbage dump, but then they got environmental conscious and 
turned it into an environmental education and wildlife management facility. Where we can go
 camping,  fishing, canoeing or just take a  walk to enjoy native wild life. I'm kind of 
summarizing the little that I know. If you are more interested about it, please read here.

They also have native animals on display. According to them, those are animals that 
are found hurt and they have rescued them.  But if you wonder about other animals  on 
display that are not hurt at all, like above squirrel. Well, They are display volunteers!


Thank you for your visit!!
