Spring trail walk in Holden Arboretum

Today’s visit to the Murch Canopy Walk and Kalberer Emergent Tower marks my fifth time to experience these special features at the Arboretum. Links to those earlier visits can be seen here and here.

One of my favorite sights in the rhododendron garden is the gazebo pictured above. Sometimes, when I want to just enjoy the peace of the garden, I will take my lunch and sit in the gazebo.

But today I met my friend Lorna at the visitor’s center where we purchased tickets for the Emergent Tower and Canopy Walk, and we are going to head down the trail to the rhododendron garden. Lunch will wait until after we enjoy the garden, climb the Emergent Tower, and make our way back to the patio at the visitors’ center. If I had special ordered the weather for today’s visit to Holden Arboretum, it would have been for a day exactly like this, so let’s head on down the trail. Click on any of the pictures in the gallery and immerse yourself in the sights of summer in the Arboretum.

I hope you enjoyed your virtual walk in the garden. And I know you didn’t get out of breath like I did when we climbed the Tower! Thankfully they have places you can stop and catch your breath while you enjoy the view on the way up. I needed them! Now it’s time for lunch. Lorna and I brought ours, but you’re on your own! Thanks for joining us for this virtual tour in the Arboretum.

See you in a day or two for another trail walk.

  1. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. But imagine if you added some great visuals or video clips to
    give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but
    with images and videos, this website could undeniably
    be one of the greatest in its field. Fantastic blog!

    1. Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment. Suggestions are always appreciated, although I’m not sure what you mean about “adding visuals.” It’s true that I don’t use videos, and that might be fun, but I include plenty of visuals/photographs in my blog. It is basically a photoblog.

    1. You’re welcome, Iriz. I’m glad you joined me on the trail. This is one of my favorite places to walk…so many different trails, plenty of wide open space, and no crowds. A great place to enjoy the outdoors.
