Wordless Wednesday-A Peaceful Walk on a Winters Day

Mason Neck State Park-Fairfax County VA

Mason Neck National Wildlife Refuge in Fairfax County is a 2200 acre established as a habitat for bald eagles in 1969.  During the spring and summer bird watchers by the thousands come and spend time looking for eagles, blue herons and over 200 species of birds.

In the winter time it is a great place to walk and enjoy solitude.  The shoreline looks out across the Potomac River and Belmont Bay. The refuge is located just a few miles from Lorton and Fort Belvoir.

When I took this photo I started humming the Mama's and Papa's song "On A Winters Day"

"All the leaves are brown
And the sky is gray
I've been for a walk
On a winter's day"
