superbe endroit et paysage pour se promener

VP said...

I love this trail and the river is beautiful, framed by the trees, with the reflection of the blue sky. I can imagine this in spring or summer...
Speaking of coincidences, today you posted a picture with Lois Anne (and Haley) and I posted one with Trillian (Munich)!

Is there anything better than a walk with your dog on a beautiful day?

Wolynski said...

Where is this? The Everglades?
I've been to Florida a few times, but saw nothing like this. Beautiful photos.

Cezar and Léia said...

Cute!
The white path in this first shot, reminds me snow! I know it's crazy but looks like some snow...
And the second picture is really a pleasant surprise!
Magnificent! :)

I've hear that alligators often come up on shore to swallow dogs for lunch, non? Beautiful photos, Jacob Meister!
Bon weekend

Jacob said...

@ Safe Leif - Now, you're gonna scare ev'rybody!

But yes, it happens, sometimes.

Allison said...

WATCH OUT LOIS ANNE! YOU'RE GONNA... !!BONK!!.... HIT YOUR HEAD ON THAT LOG! Good thing sweet Haley is there to administer kisses and make it all better!
Happy Weekend to you Jacob! 'Tis this girl's birthday tomo. I'll be celebrating in style at the Eagan Rotary Black Tie Art Gala with You-know-who as The Prezzzzz and host-with-the-most! Snaps to follow, I'm sure...;)

Jacob said...

@ Allison - Well, happy birthday to you! I note you referred to You-Know-Who as the prezzzzz of the Eagan Rotary...

I hope he doesn't speak; you'll be hearing a lot more z's then!

More pictures of Minneesotans eating? Omigod!

Well, we'll make the best of it. Have lots of fun!

Ah, from bridges to foot paths and all under a gentle blue sky. I sure wish I was back there.

Hilda said...

I just love that fallen tree arching over the path. What a wonderful place for a walk, but alligators??

Jacob said...

@ VP - I thought that was Trillian! You may wish to have her check out the additional comment on your blog!

Birdman said...

I can see where this river would be tantalizing for a canoe. Gators or no!

Lee Spangler said...

This looks like a beautiful place anytime of year. I am so glad there are still alligators lurking about. It adds a sense of mystery and adventure.

Halcyon said...

What a beautiful place to take a walk. (And get some photos too!)

Tricia said...

Pretty & colorful!
I think I see what I thought was that head in the water by the buoy. heheheee

Jarart said...

It looks like a wonderful place to walk. I like the tree bridge.

Daryl said...

Lovely .. both your ladies and the trail

Lois said...

It is lovely Jacob! It reminds me so much of the Wakulla River here. Lots of gators and snakes in there I'm sure!

JM said...

The fallen tree couldn't look better on that trail!

cieldequimper said...

C'est sublime.
Are those fishing nets (sorry no time to read all the other comments)

Jacob said...

@ Ciel - No, they are roped off areas to keep boats from going aground...

afv said...

Sigh! this is so scenic and I love the tree, it looks like a bridge.

Life with Kaishon said...

Tranquil!

I'd love to be walking that trail today.

Andreea said...

Looks so beautiful and quiet, a perfect place for a walk. Back when I was living in California we used to go on trails similar like this every weekend and it always raised my spirits.

Ming said...

That is one fabulous picture. Love the color surrounding and blue sky.
