I stopped by a small parking area near my house the other day to find that it was a actually a small conservation area called the Lamprey River Floodplain. There was a short trail, by no means a "hike", that went along the banks of Lamprey River. Even in this winter month, there were some cool things to see. There was tons of beaver activity, some Eastern Bluebirds, etc.

Here are some of my favorite shots from the short trek:
More beaver activity
Some cool fungus
Eastern Bluebird...does anyone know if these guys go south for the winter?
Older Beaver Activity
Some tracks, I assume from a squirrel or chipmunk
Green violet leaves...not sure why these haven't wilted for the winter.
