Lime Hollow Nature Center Art Trail

The fall foliage colors are gone aftrer the last wind storm . But there are soooo many other beautiful things to see in nature. We wanted to post something interesting this week. We visited Fillmore Gorge State Park in Monrovia and found a beautiful waterfall. We caught a photo of a brilliant red cardinal in a tree. But the photo that we selected was along the Eric Kroot Art Trail at Lime Hollow Nature Center near Cortland, NY. How many times out in the woods can you find a bear holding a jack-o-lantern?
