About the author jmankowsky

This photo blog features the seasonal changes in nature observed in my own backyard and a variety of local environments. The Wachusett Meadow Audubon Sanctuary in Princeton, MA is often highlighted as a model for the positive effects a small nature preserve can have on the larger environment and the local community. Local sites of historical, cultural and recreational interest are spotlighted as well. All photographs were taken by me. Thank you so much for visiting.

    1. It is a pretty place, Laurie. The mountain is good shared use, as well. Part ski area, part State Park, where the ancient forest was left untouched. The audubon abuts the mountain, and the trails connect, so it’s good for all!

      1. I should say so! It sounds as though a lot of thought was put into this.

    1. Thank you so much, Elvira. I am enjoying your blog, as well, especially the photos. My Spanish is limited, so I get as much as I can, and get the important phrases translated.

        You are going to learn Spanish little by little, you will see.

    1. Alas, Tanja , I do not downhill ski. (I snowshoe occasionally, and loved skating in my youth.) I imagine that, being a Pike’s Peak girl, you are handy at skiing?

      1. Snowshoeing is probably healthier than downhill skiing, Julie. When a child, I learned to ski in Austria, but after moving to the US, my husband got me started on Nordic skiing, and we both love it.
        Pike’s Peak used to have a ski area (as did the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs), but no longer. Not enough snow nowadays. 😦
