Red Bridge Walk

Tonight we went for a relaxing sunset walk near the red covered bridge down by the Tulpehoken Creek.  This is where we walk to look for turtles and the first wildflowers that emerge in early Spring.  Tonight we saw a great blue heron, ducks, and many squirrels gathering nuts.  The park is full of beautiful…
