Do you love exploring your own backyard? And by backyard, I mean your own state or city? Travel is so advanced these days that it’s a snap to jump on a boat or plane to the other side of the world, so I consider visiting spots in my home state “the backyard”.
Today’s Sunday Snapshot is from Sheldon Marsh Nature Preserve in Huron, OH. Located in Erie County (and only a few minute’s drive from Cedar Point), the preserve and contiguous wetlands are part of only a small amount of undeveloped shoreline in Sandusky Bay.
The preserve is home to over 300 species of birds and wildflowers add to its beauty. In summer, don’t be surprised if you are able to spy owls, herons, and ducks and and around the banks. Many paths are paved or have boardwalk-style paths like this photo. My visit at dusk was the perfect opportunity to spy waterfowl, listen to songbirds, and even spy a fawn jumping and playing in the tall grass near the edge of the woods.
Do you have a favorite spot to take walks at dusk? Tell me in the comments below.
