This plague was added to the bench that so many people walk past and come to sit on and birdwatch during their hike all year round.
This is one of my favorite locations to photograph families. It yields beautiful backdrops throughout the year. It shows us every step of all four New England seasons. A sanctuary not only for the birds and the bugs but for everyone who walks the path. The sites the smells the people; always in use and always open to people of all ages. (p.s. there are three path options). It is so much fun to get families outside and get some fresh air and fun portraits at the same time.
