Millbrook Marsh in the Morning Fog


Can you guess what this is? Keep reading and you'll find out by the end of all the photos.!

We had morning fog today, so we went out armed with our cameras and wandered through Millbrook Marsh Park, in State College, PA. There were tiny droplets of water everywhere - all of them frozen and thawing as the sun burned it's way through the dense fog. Hope you enjoy the results of our little foray in the park.
The barn is part of the building complex for Millbrook Marsh Nature Center.

Millbrook Marsh truly is a wonderful, peaceful setting, despite being quite close to Rte. 220. One can hear the trucks, but one can also tune them out! I always come away from there renewed with a sense of wonder and contentment...
