BC: Many fond memories are still awaiting to be recorded.
FC: Life on Coyote Hill Summer 2008
1: Wanted: A quiet place in the woods far away from the continual motion and sounds of the city.
2: Exiting the road and driving up the sea of grass automatically relaxes the sole. The wonders of nature surround you from the birds that move the shadows across the treetops to the snakes that slither from under the rocks.
3: The hill is alive with the visual beauty and sounds of nature.
4: The beautiful water that flows through the east side of the hill is fed by a local spring. It is a life line to the large trees and wildlife that live in and around the never ending flow of water. | The creek images are foreever changing. You can never expect to see the same image twice thanks to the power of the water that continually flows.
5: This tree frog was a delightful surprise as I was walking down a trail that was close to the south end of the woods. I look up and their he was sitting in the crook of small tree.
6: Dragonflies I am really starting to enjoy taking dragonfly pictures! They love to sit and pose on their favorite twig that is sticking up. They are fun to watch as they dart about the pasture as if they are on patrol. The following pages are some of my favorite images of these beautiful creative four winged flying creatures.
9: What's in the Pond?
10: At the base of the west side of the hill is a beautiful little pond. It is brimming with perch and bull frogs. Dad and Madison are having a great time catching the feisty little fish.
11: Insects Everywhere you Look!
12: I am amazed at how many insects that you see when you just start looking around you.
13: Flowers - the beauty of the hill.
14: These are some of the wonderful wildflower and blackberry plants that blanket the hill over the summer season.
15: Nature comes in all forms. Our family is so blessed to have a place they can go and experience its solitude and beauty.
16: The picture closest to the top of the page show the pond down at Grandma and Grandpa Dishman's house in 2006 when we were in a drought. You can see the hill in the background.
17: This is a very large Black Walnut Tree. It was one of the fortunate trees that was not cut down when they mined coal from the hill back in the late 1980's. It is located on the northwest side.
18: The hill has a beauty of its own in any season. From flowers, to shadows, to foot prints in the soft mud.
19: Serenity, peacefulness, and nature always surround you...
