I met the preserve when Dad visited me last year. The day we went was humid and thunderstormy and the mosquitoes ate me alive, but I vowed to go back and photograph, which I did later in the fall. This page is the result.

This preserve is a fresh-water tidal swamp. Mill Creek sits off Route 9J in northern Columbia County. The creek is a tributary of the Hudson River and it gets four foot tides twice a day, 150 miles north of the river's mouth!! Please enjoy the photos. Click on the thumbnails to see a larger photo.

I saw these little flowers by the roadside on the way into the trailhead.
Creek bed and bank mud textures. I could imagine them, in a few million years, becoming rocks.

This wayside marker is a wonderful example of good interpretation. I am not going to get into the details of why it is. If you really want to know, please ask.
This is not the original photograph. I actually had to crop the tree trunk out of the left hand side (because someone told me it was a distracting element).

Two different photos of New York Asters

One of the plants in the photo is Virginia Creeper. I don't remember which.
