This is just a quick post to say thank you to whomever nominated me at the Fang Fetish Awards and the bigbad_awards for Drive it Home. It was certainly a surprise to me, and it put a smile on my face. 

This weekend, I was out hiking about Inwood Hill Park, which is across the street from my apartment, and I thought I'd share some pics. 

Inwood Hill Park is the only primordial forest left in New York City and I've lived across from the park all my life. At its northern most point is a tidal salt marsh. This place is called Spuyten Duyvil, a Dutch name, which I think loosely translates to "in spite of the devil." The park also contains the historically famous location in Manhattan where the Dutch stole purchased the island from its natives for $23. There is a plaque and rock to commemorate it. 

When I was just a kitten, we had a bird feeder we used to hang on our fire escape and all sort of birdies would flock to it, including woodpeckers, starlings, sparrows, gold finches, nut-hatches, chickadees, blue jays, and others. There are also a good many red-tailed hawks that perch in the trees. On my two most recent visits, while on the path with my dad, we passed a little brown bunny and a snake. Ah nature, I love it. Here are 5/45 pics I took.
