Lyman Reserve is a local trail system near my house. I've been desperate for something new to shoot, so decided to see what was there. Of course I picked a day when it was super hot and humid, so it really wasn't optimum for a walk through the woods.
The first trail was the one down to the beach. These 'Blair Witch Project' things are in the small patch of woods next to the parking lot. Not sure what they are or who did them; I can't seem to find any info on them.
This one looks like a giant spider.
You have to cross the road and then pick up the trail again, which first brings you past the old Red Brook Farm.
Note the date underneath, 7/30/67. The Summer of Love.
Path to the beach.
Red Brook empties into Buttermilk Bay.
Cute little beach down the end. Nice and quiet and somewhat private. There were only 2 people on it when I was there, but of course that was also at noon on a weekday.
On the way back.
After crossing the road into the parking lot, I next took one of the woodsy trails. I cannot emphasize enough just how hot and close it was that day, and not a breath of air in the woods.
I decided not to do the pine barrens loop, and only walked on a shorter trail, then back.
I had to go out on Head of the Bay Road to get this picture which was a little dicey with the lack of sidewalk and people flying by at 45 mph. But I needed to get this shot.
And looking across at the RR Bridge again.
I'd like to say it was a nice day for a walk, but all I could think about was getting back to my car to blast the air conditioner. I'll try it again in the fall.
