Exploring Amico Island

A few weeks ago, Dave and I took an impromptu evening hike at Amico Island Park which is actually a peninsula that just out where the Rancocas Creek and Delaware River meet. It's a beautiful park with wide, easy to navigate trails. Small ponds are scattered around the park, but the real stunner is the spot where the two bodies of water meet and you can see across the water to Pennsylvania, people fishing, and tons of water fowl.

This cool natural arch nest looking mess of branches fascinates me.

I thought this looked like some puzzle from a Myst style video game!

I'm fascinated by mushrooms, and hope to be able to learn enough to forage my own someday. For now, I just take pics of them.

Some ruins of old machinery or a structure. I'm not sure. I couldn't get any closer than this.

This is a huge black cherry tree.

I love being outside during the golden hour. As we were walking back to the car, a horn went off and a park worker announced that the park was closing. Almost immediately the deer came out. It was "OK the people are gone, you can come out now" warning. Looking forward to visiting again!
