A Pond So Pretty I forgot The Birds

I can't believe that I've only been 10 minutes away from Miller's Pond. I remember going there as a kid but haven't been back since. The water was crystal clear, the trees reflecting off the water looked like a painting, and not a house or cottage was anywhere in sight. 
I walked the trail that circled the pond and admired the rocky formations I came across. There were some birds along the way. The expected chickadees, robins, titmice, woodpeckers, and one Ruby-crowned Kinglet to top things off but this morning was all about the scenery.
I came across this 1895 marker. I'm not sure what it means but hopefully nobody is buried there.
I was shocked to see a group of about 10 swimmers out in the water since the temperature was in the 30's!

Parks that have ponds unspoiled by human habitation are a treasure and I know that I will be back here with a fishing pole and then again in the spring for the return of the warblers!

This place is amazing and beautiful!
I think I could spend the day there.

Love the reflections.

That is gorgeous! I would be taking in the views and not swimming in the water. Too cold for me!
