What I Did Last Weekend

I found some colts foot, just unfurling, in Mont Alto State Park. We were there for our friend's Pennsylvania wedding reception and I wasn't really expecting to find any spring flowers. But I did manage to catch a few colts foot (colts feet?), which are usually the first ones out.

Then, on Sunday, my Aunt & Uncle (Salty) came for a visit. Salty explains the situation and history of the bridge very well in his latest post, but I thought you might appreciate a "behind-the-scenes" picture of his totally incredible shot of the bridge.

And then, the storm hit and we got hail. Probably the largest hail I have seen since I was a small girl, but we were fortunate as just a few miles north of us golf ball sized hail stones were reported.

We were very lucky in that we only received high winds and heavy rain, many nearby areas suffered damage and it was later confirmed that a tornado touched down in the northern part of the county. And all this, in March!

The colt’s foot we have around here have unfurled and look so springy!
Thanks for posting a shot of Salty; we really enjoyed our day visiting :)
The hail storm was violent although, it made for some great photos.

I think that bridge looks great in B&W too. It was cool to see your perspective of Dad shooting it.

I was at that bridge yesterday, but my photos didn't turn out as good as yours. We also had the hail storm. I never saw anything like that.
