SWA Greenway Trail System

I happen to think that Palm Beach County is an incredible place to live. Many local residents don't realize (and/or appreciate) the amazing variety of things they can do and see here. A few years ago it occurred to me that to really enjoy my home town, I have to act like a tourist on a regular basis.... a tourist with a Canon XSi and a newly purchased Photoshop CS4.

A recent side challenge on DP Challenge (DPC) called "Photo a week, 2010" really aroused my creativity. The concept of this side challenge is for everyone to pick their own theme and then post one photo every week based on that theme. My theme is "Palm Beach County", and I'm certain I won't have a problem posting 52 pictures that represent this county.

Another user, tinkie2010, decided to create a blog based on her images, and I really love the idea... so I'm stealing it. This is my first ever blog and I'm extremely excited about it. My biggest challenge will be to keep up with it during tax season (I'm a CPA specializing in taxes and will get very busy between February and April 15th).

My first picture this year was taken the other day while hiking with my friend Dina. Between the SWA and the Grassy Waters Preserve is a trail sytem that covers 300 acres. The amazing thing is that I had no idea these trails existed until a few months ago.

Dina & I really wanted to get away from home for a few hours and decided to finally explore these trails. Although we saw way too many creepy buzzard-type birds, we also saw two deer, adorable little birds and a giant alligator. The best part was actually the weather. The sky was a vivid shade of blue and the temperature was pretty much perfect.

Toward the end of our walk, we realized that we had walked much too far into the trail (for approx 2 hours) and that we'd have to walk back. Thankfully, Brian the WPB Police Officer drove by and offered us a ride back to our car (ok, we really begged him); he even showed us where the huge alligator was hanging out.

My favorite shot of the day was of this slash pine tree (my Palm Beach County photo of the week on DPC):

Maybe it's time to buy a good pair of hiking boots?

Love the blog and pics. I was surprised to see how well you write, being that you're a numbers person. You not only take wonderful pictures and edit them amazingly in photoshop, but you have a knack for the written word. The descriptions of your day with Dina are so illustrative that it took me there (and now I want to go for real). Hope you're having fun on your vacation! -Sarah
