Here are some photos from my short but pleasant hike in the Garden State a few days ago. I am not going to write a lot today. I will let the photos do the talking for me. Mother Nature was dressed for show on this lovely September day in Cape May!
There are great views from the top of the Cape May lighthouse.
While I didn't get any photographs of monarchs as they headed south, I was plenty of them during my stay at the Cape. I marveled at these tiny creatures, preparing to fly across the huge Delaware Bay and then a couple of thousand miles more to their wintering place in the mountainous pine forests of Mexico. How do they do it? How do these creatures, with a brain the size of a pin head, find this place that they have never been to? In fact their parents were not there, and I don't think that their grandparents were either. Somehow, they do it, against all odds. It seems miraculous!
