Hiking, Mill Mountain
Parkway Series #99 11 x 14 oil Sold
The maintenance road behind the Mill Mountain Zoo provided a perfect place to hike last Saturday as temperatures rose into the 50's. The wet winter has left its stamp on the rocks and trees with an abundance of lichens and moss. The blue-greens contrast nicely with the red-oranges of the leaves. I'm continually surprised at how much color I am finding in winter landscapes.
