Before heading back to the mountains of Southwest Virginia, I took a short walk on the Virginia Capital Trail. The Cap Trail is a 51.7 multi-use, fully-paved trail that runs from the City of Richmond, Virginia to James City County, near Williamsburg, Virginia.
The goal is to add a 7 mile connector to the restored area of Colonial Williamsburg, as well as the College of William and Mary.
Part of the trail runs through a suburban wetland. Please follow the link for more information about the importance of preserving these spaces.
Excellent Laurie 👍🏻
Outstanding reflection shots! I love how communities put in the effort to connect trails in this way, and to provide wildlife corridors for critters to live among us.
how amazing ! Trees growning in water. Reminds me of the Wanaka tree x thousands 😀
So pretty, Laurie. We have the Heckrodt Wetland Reserve in the area, complete with boardwalks, resident deer, cattails and open water. It’s beautiful in fall, winter and spring (summer is mosquito haven). It is important to preserve these areas, lest someone builds yet another apartment or business complex.
