Reed Bingham State Park

 I'm linking this post to Friday Fences.  Two fence pictures... over the river and through the woods :-)  I am also linking to Skywatch Friday.  Please visit this two sites and enjoy wonderful photos.

Last month we went to Reed Bingham State Park which is near Adel Georgia and not far from Valdosta where our son and his family live.

The Little River runs by part of the walking trail.  We took our fishing gear down to a pier and played with the tiny fish for a bit.  Bait snatchers is what they were.

All the photos should open in a new window in Flickr.

Reed Bingham State Park strives to preserve the wildlife that lives within its boundaries.  This is a nesting box, I think for ducks.   There are also turkey vultures that nest along the river and a pair of eagles.  I have not seen the eagles yet.

It was quiet and peaceful here.  I just wanted to cloud watch.

 With Halloween looming  the moss looked spooky, but beautiful.

 It was beautiful along the boardwalk too.  
There were many orchard spider webs amongst the rails.

But unfortunately the webs do not show in the photos.

 Fungi was abundant.
I'm not sure if that is a good thing or not.  
It is pretty though.

 These leaves were lying on the rail... just looking pretty to me.

The park grows long-leaf pine trees too.  
At one time they were abundant in Georgia.  
They were severely harvested and almost totally lost for all time. 


 Here is a planted stand about halfway 
between the walking trails and the campground.  
It took the trees many years to get this tall.


This fungi was in the campground area.  
I have never seen any quite like this before.  


I can almost see a face within it :-)  
Where the blue blob is in the photo on the right 
just above my name is where our campsite was.

  7. What a nice park! The clouds are so pretty and gave a great reflections on the water.

    P.S. I have to read a bit on the side bar, and we have one thing in common - crochet - but I do not do it anymore since I started this photography hobby in 2009.

    Thanks for coming by.

  12. One thing I really love about being a part of a blog community is that we get to visit places both in the U.S. and abroad that we may never have a chance to see otherwise. Like your photo journal today. Especially drawn to your first pic the way the light slants down.

  16. Thank you so much for visiting my blog! I just read your profile info and find we have a LOT in common! I am originally from AL...married in 1969 at age 17 and am still married to the same wonderful man. We have one daughter and one grandson. I wasn't raised in AL because my Dad was in the Navy, and my hubby was in the Army and then the AF but I always considered it home...it was where my grandmother lived! :-) I too am into genealogy, and I have crocheted some in the past, but embroider and quilt mostly. I am now a follower of your blog! I loved this post. Great photos! Have an awesome week!
