Sunny moment

Entering the 500-acre woods. The marker points to two 1700s homes, one on the left and one on right, used as Revolutionary War infirmaries. Behind me, a path into the woods where a horse had trod (second photo) - hope the horse enjoyed the woods too!

I love the fact that there are markers. I wish we had a few of them here.

It's clearly a very historic site, and good that it's all documented and maintained.

A walk in the woods surrounded by history. Sounds a perfect way to spend a sunny day.

I am sure the horse enjoyed the woods. I would. Sunny moment is very beautiful. And this bare tree is just gorgeous. I love the trees like this one.

Markers - great informative idea! Looks a wonderful place for a wander and horseback riding is an option? Lovely photo, Lulu. Reminds me of parts of Coombe.

Thanks so much! It seems almost anything goes in these woods - I even found a town permit application for bow-hunting, of all things! (To help cull deer, but gun hunting does not seem allowed).

This old tree has seen a lot of life passing by it, hasn't it?
