Miles Wildlife Sanctuary

Here are about a dozen pictures of the sanctuary. The land is owned by the National Audubon Society. This picture would have been a lot prettier if it hadn't been cloudy - I'll try to go back on a nicer day and shoot much more! There's a nice trail all the way around this pond - when I lived here I got some great photos (in the pre-digital age, tho!) Posted by Picasa

Skunk cabbage and other swamp vegetation abound...
The former owner, Emily Winthrop Miles, was a sculptor, writer, and philanthropist. Posted by Picasa

Lots of wetlands - that's a beaver dam in the foreground (but the beavers weren't out playing today) Posted by Picasa
Just for fun, a black-and-white shot Posted by Picasa

Another angle on the swamp in the valley - the winter my daughter was born (1999) we had about a half-dozen bald eagles living here - I'd walk around the pond, watching them and waiting for her to be born. Posted by Picasa
