Lake Redman – Turtle

Lake Redman – Turtle

A Summertime view of a turtle emerging its head above the marshy spawning grounds of Lake Redman.
There were a number of young turtles emerging from the marsh as I walked the boardwalk.

The boardwalk at lake Redman is worth a visit. The wildlife, including frogs, turtles, and many species of birds are worth a visit. The views are worth the visit any time of the year! Check it out.

The boardwalk is accessible in York County via St George Street, Hess Road and Iron Stone Hill Road. As I write this post (October 4, 2014), the bridge on Iron Stone Hill Road just South of the entrance to the boardwalk is closed. This means one must approach the boardwalk from the North on Iron Stone Hill Road. One can also walk trail 5/5B of the William H. Kain County Park to access the boardwalk.

I used my favorite camera, the Panasonic DMC-FZ150K 12.1 MP Digital Camera with CMOS Sensor and 24x Optical Zoom (Black) Check these out too if your looking for a camera. They are next generations to the FZ150…. Fz200 Fz1000.

NCR Trail – 2 Mile Marker

NCR Trail – Paved in Some Areas

A few years ago some heavy rains did some real damage by washing out the NCR Trail. For a short stretch around the 1.5 mile marker(New Freedom), 2 mile marker (New freedom/Railroad) and 3 mile marker (Railroad) the trail has been paved. This has made a big difference in repairing, an preventing future damage!

There are 3 benches about a quarter mile downhill (North) of the 2 mile marker. A bit further North is a house on the right of the trail that recently went through some extensive renovations! It is gray in color and up on the hill. It was interesting to watch the evolution as it was being renovated.

In Autumn and Spring, deer can often be seen off to the right (East) of this part of the trail. Off to the left of the trail the yards appear to be well kept. The spring time view can be rewarding!

Get out and enjoy a walk or ride!

I used a Panasonic digital camera for capturing the image below. I have found these Panasonic digital cameras to be very reliable and easy to use! If your looking to improve on your photography skills or are just interested in how they do it, see Amy’s Digital Photography Success
She has made some great guide books!

in-earbuds along with some other select brands.

Some of the nice features about (in the) ear phones (earbuds,  in the ear buds,  or  canal buds) is their portability. They are easy to store .

They are also less noticeable than a regular set of headphones. Something that might be an advantage around the office or study hall.

Earbuds seal the ear thus minimizing outside (interruptive) sounds! If you are traveling the train, plane, bus or if you work in a noisy

environment, this can be a welcome advantage!

Sound quality is usually good.

Shure in-earbuds run the range starting at about 50.00 and work their way up. Shure has been around for a long time and they are known for high quality products!Shure and other brand in-earbuds

NCR Trail – Nice Walk

NCR Trail – Nice Walk

August 8, 2014 was a nice day to park at the NCR Trail, Paper Mill Road parking lot and wallk the trail for a few miles. I started by working my way down to the 0 mile marker (Ashland) and walked backup the trail past the 1.5 mile marker. The trail was fairly busy. There were people fishing, walkers, bikers, and folks pushing babies in strollers!

The image below shows some of the walkers and bikers.

At one time there were railroad tracks that occupied this trail.

According to an article in the Baltimore Sun, Dated February 3, 1923, .. “last night a freight train and an engine were in a head on collision”  .. “four freight cars were wrecked and a number of hogs were killed.”. The incident left many commuters stranded! ..”Many hogs escape”. No indication in the article of people being killed.

Luckily, by the time I took this walk, there were no hogs left wandering the trail.
