Fantastic Spring Hike at Radnor Lake + Owl

April 8th, 2010 · 3 Comments · owls, Radnor Lake

These events occurred on Sunday, April 4, 2010… Every year I am amazed at how quickly and suddenly the foliage at Radnor Lake – and all over, for that matter – occurs, and hiking at Radnor Lake in the spring is a marvel to behold. It really is! The leaves are already more than halfway […]

Mistletoe at Radnor Lake?

April 8th, 2010 · 2 Comments · plants, Radnor Lake

While hiking at Radnor Lake during the winter a couple of years ago, I noticed a few plants growing up in the branches of at least one medium-sized tree along the lake’s edge. I thought this was rather interesting, since the only other plant I could remember growing on tree branches was moss, as one […]

Sunday, August 30, 2009 My friend Steve D. and I had a fantastic hiking experience at Radnor Lake last month – on July 26, to be exact. We had two wonderful sightings in my view, or one great sighting and one scary experience in HIS view. You see, good ol’ Steve is not a snake […]

Sunday, July 05, 2009 As every avid naturalist knows, certain times and conditions provide more wildlife observation opportunities than others. For instance, dawn and dusk are definitely notable for increased wildlife activity at a place like Radnor Lake, bursting at the seams with nature’s four-legged bounty. Another such time is immediately following rain – especially […]

Short Hike at Radnor Lake

March 9th, 2009 · 2 Comments · deer, Radnor Lake

Sunday, March 08, 2009 After checking the radar for possible storms, I remembered we have an extra hour before dark now – excellent! Plenty of time for a short hike at Radnor Lake. It was 71 degrees out; cloudy and windy too, with gusts up to 17mph, according to the weather site. I parked the […]

Amazing Alligator Snapping Turtles

February 27th, 2009 · 1 Comment · Radnor Lake, turtles, wildlife

Monday, February 16, 2009 When I returned to the house today from a meeting and errands – most of which were a waste of time, with today being President’s Day – I flipped the boob tube onto the Discovery Channel and noted that Dirty Jobs was on. I expected the creepy show A Haunting to […]

This will almost certainly amount to bad news for plants tempted to bloom early […]

CPAs Hike at Radnor Lake, Too

September 1st, 2008 · 4 Comments · meeting hikers, Radnor Lake

There were so many cars on the west side of Radnor Lake that I had to park on the street, and cars were stretched almost halfway up the Otter Creek Road hill. That’s quite a showing, but not too surprising for a nice, though hot, morning in Nashville. I walked past the spillway, took a […]
