Where Rabbits Run and Humans Walk and Reflect

More late summer images from Wachusett Meadow.

Eastern Cottontail Rabbits have proliferated this year at the Meadow.

Raised-Lettering on signs, as well as an audio informational program available at the visitors center, allow the visually impaired to more fully experience the meadow along the All Persons Trail.
The North Meadow is a popular easy hiking area.

Cattails in the North Meadow are vivid harbingers of fall.
A section of the All Persons Trail leads to the South Meadow.
Bas relief sculptures aid in identifying tree and barn swallows.
Visitors to the All Persons Trail can greet Wachusett’s endearing sheep on the way to the South Meadow…
…and then continue on to a sunny resting spot .

  1. It’s great to see this celebration of prairie and meadow, Julie, and the invitation for all persons to enjoy it. Thanks for the wonderful photos.

    1. Thanks for the thoughtful comment, Jet. It is surely a place all can enjoy. The adirondack chairs will soon be updated to chairs, that, while looking very “adirondack”, are higher, with flatter seats, allowing for those who struggle physically to sit and stand more easily when using them. Pretty neat, I think!
      I always enjoy your “visits”, and look forward to all the awesome West Coast nature that you share with us.

    1. Thank you. Let’s see; there are 12 miles of trails there, and it is connected to the Wachusett Mt., 2005 ft elevation. For hardy folks like yourselves, that might be just a before breakfast jaunt. 😉 And to make it even easier, the black flies are mostly not a problem down this way….
