Saturday Snapshot: Winter Hike at Old Amusement Park

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Melinda at West Metro Mommy Reads.

Wow, I haven't had time for a Saturday Snapshot post since Christmas! I probably still don't have the time today, but I have missed this meme!

Today's photos are from a hike my husband and I took a couple of weekends ago - when the sun was shining and the sky was blue! We went to Brandywine Springs Park, a local park that used to include a popular amusement park back in the early 1900's. It looks like they are fixing up the area where the old amusement park was, with new bridges and paths, framed photos from the park's heyday, and some markers showing where the different attractions were. It was a beautiful day and lots of fun, so enjoy!

Beautiful blue sky day! A rarity here lately.

Winter trees and blue skies.

The requisite hiking selfie!

Hope you are enjoying a nice weekend!


  1. What fun to hike in a historic setting! I love the idea of including photos from the park's heyday and markers for the different attractions. Looks like you had fun taking advantage of a beautiful winter day.
    My Saturday Snapshot post features a hike in Skagit County, WA.

    1. We did! We can't wait to see what else is planned for this site - it was clear they were upgrading, fixing it up, etc.

  2. It must have been abandoned for years and years. Lovely day.

    1. Yes, we knew about the site, but it used to be overgrown, just part of a local park. Now, they seem to be taking steps to clean it up and focus on the history - a local vocational school is helping with the project. Very cool.
