The Tribute Shoreline Nature Trail In August (1)

A couple of days ago, I enjoyed a short hike at the Tribute Shoreline Nature Trail, which is in Wynnwood Park on the peninsula nestled between the peninsulas of Hidden Cove Park and Stewart Creek Park in The Colony at Lewisville Lake north of Dallas, Texas. In the morning, we had some thunderstorm coming through. So, the temperatures were not as hot as the previous days. But it brought a lot of moisture, and therefore high humidity with it. After about half of a mile, I turned around to get back to the trail head. I have to come back, when the temperatures are cooler, again. But I enjoyed to capture some photos along the trail, which I’ll post here below:

Summer Has Arrived In North Texas

Widow Skimmer Dragonfly

Today we’ve officially reached 100°F in DFW for the first time this Summer. This Summer is mild compared to the heat we had in July 2018. Back then we had several days with temperatures over 110°F and a heat index of 120°F. The dragonflies like this heat and flies around in the yard.

The Colony Shoreline Trail In September

Hiking the first mile from the North Colony Blvd. entrance at The Colony Shoreline Trail, I was very lucky with viewing some wildlife on that September morning back in 2013.
