Bogue Chitto State Park

 Hubby and I took a nice little day trip to Bogue Chitto State Park. We needed a nature day and to get away from the Holiday Stress. Here are just a few pictures:

    1. Thank you :) Sadly this is our winter in Louisiana. I would give anything for a real winter with some snow.

  5. I would trade you our snow and Friday's potential rain/ice storm for a beautiful walk in the park with changing leaves and mild Lousiana weather. Should we talk?

  9. What a beautiful area. Looks like a great place to get out and relax. This reminds me that we need to head out and have a day to relax in the woods or by the river and maybe do a little fishing.

  12. We used to have a year pass for our state parks when the kids were little! Alas, it seems I don't really go to them as much anymore. LOL Well, I DO live in the same woods as the parks are, so I have the same "things" I guess! We used to go to parks near us with lakes since that is the one thing we don't have! Or other features we don't have like cliffs and things for the kids to climb.

  19. How pretty is that park Bogue Chitto State Park, in Louisiana, looks like you had nice and relaxing day, I like that they have the wooden walkways and the variety you showed in your pictures. Thank you for sharing.

  23. Your pictures compare to some of the beautiful parks we have in Wisconsin, except that they are snow-covered now.

  25. Going to nature parks is so relaxing. That picture of the branch, third to the last, is my favorite.

  26. I did a name search for Bogue Chitto and in Choctaw it means big creek. It also is used to refer to clear, swift flowing rivers. We have creeks, but am glad to say they are not swift flowing rivers. Our creeks usually are located behind someone's property.

  27. Such beautiful scenery and photos. Wish I were there right now!

  28. It's really pretty seeing the small bits of color against the brown of the trees.

  29. Nice photography....just goes to show how beautiful nature is year round. That tree photo is particularly amazing, it looks other-worldly.

  30. I love the two side-by-side pictures of the purple flowers and the red berries. I'm glad the birds saved the berries so we could have a glimpse of their beautiful color.

  36. Hope you can have a relaxing day like this now that Christmas is over. I think we all need it. :)

  37. If you are still having mild weather, this would be a perfect place for "Northerners" to travel to, especially this winter. It's cold & the weatherman on our local station just warned us that it's going to get colder!

  38. Hope you are still having good weather and can maybe go to the park this weekend.

  39. I love walking on a carpet of fallen leaves. Makes me want to scoop some up and toss a bunch overhead.

  40. Hope you get to go this weekend and take some more photos. The weather here is nice today for December. Hopefully, your weather is, too.

  41. nothing more beautiful than nature, we experienced an ice storm up here in Toronto this week and as nasty as mother nature is we could still appreciate the beauty of the snow and ice on all the trees and bushes. Thanks for sharing!

  44. These photos make me dream of a warmer happier time! I get dreadfully depressed with these long PA winters but looking at what is to come helps!
