The day I went up to White Horse, I passed by a sign for Ellisville Harbor State Park. Upon further research online, it looked like a short trail that lead out to a little beach. We decided to check it out on another gorgeous, but cool, Saturday.
The trail starts out from the little parking area, with a meadow on one side and glimpses of the marshes on the other.
It's hard to tell but this is looking down quite a ways onto a giant rock that was deposited by a glacier.
The fact that we were already this high up should have clued us into the fact that the trail was going to have to go downhill at some point (which meant uphill on the way home). That chimney is the Sandwich Power Plant.
The Healthy Trail sign also should've tipped us off.
So we went downhill....I was afraid I might slip because it was a little steep in places but it ended up down here on this cute little beach.
I had Russell helping me look for glass.
Someone did a great job stacking and balancing these rocks!
Russell spotted this one! A nice aqua piece! He actually found a few pieces for me! I was doing the Sue Heck Happy Dance.

I'm not terribly sure what part of this beach is the harbor.

Sumac's turning red.

I found some unusual stones on this beach! And most of the glass is fully cooked too.
