Scenic Sunday - Monument Rock

One of the local hikes is Monument Rock, and I thought I'd share some photographs I took there on a hike last fall for this Scenic Sunday post. As with most trails in this area, it winds through woods.
You glimpse Monument Rock itself fairly often.
Near its base is a pond (I've posted a picture of the rock reflected in this pond here in the past).
The rock is fairly tall, and much wider than it is narrow. There's a tree growing right against it on one side.
I liked the reflections and these tree roots.
I also liked the shape of this tree.
And finally, the remains of this root cellar show that you can't get away from graffiti anywhere.

  3. Great shots, what a wonderful trail to have to hike. I think I like the tree roots and water reflection best. Although the remains of the old root cellar captures my imagination..wonder about it's history and the humans who built it.
    Sad that some people have to leave their mark where ever the go.
