pretty yellow poison ivy
The trail runs between the links and the river, in low lying, somewhat swampy terrain. I tend to avoid this trail during mosquito season because it appears to be prime breeding ground. I thought I would be safe today (it's October after all!), but I still managed to find a few of the little pests.
I also found these eye catching plants and trees.
Old Man's Beard
Definitely better than walking the streets of my neighborhood, dodging cars and dogs. I need to stop here to walk more often!
