Let’s go trail walking!


2016_07_05_Trailwalk_Chagrin River Park_0027-Edit


Hello friends. Several years ago, I created this blog by combining three of my favorite activities…

  • trail walking
  • photography,
  • and writing.

I named it Seen Along the Trail because most of the posts will be about the sights  I see and the people I meet on my trail walks in local parks. If you enjoy the outdoors as much as I do, I hope you will follow my blog and become a trail walker too. I will add new posts on Tuesday, Thursday, and at least once on the weekend. Please leave comments or “like” the posts you enjoy, so I will know you have been walking the trails with me.  I’m looking forward to your visits!

A little more info…

  • I sign my blog posts “Trail Walker,” but my friends call me Carolyn or Skip. I hope you will too. If you want to know more, you can read my full profile here.
  • I took the picture at the top of this page along the trail in Chagrin River Park on July 5, 2016.
  • I love visitors, especially when they leave comments on my blog.  😊
  • To see my recent posts, please keep scrolling down!


Thanks for visiting my blog! I hope you will come back soon.

  1. Found my way here through Ann’s mention of this article on her blog. Lovely article indeed and it’s great that we can meet and connect here. 🙂
    Looking forward to many more posts from you.


    1. Thank you for the encouraging words. In winter, on my short trail walks, I usually only carry one lens, but I vary them depending on what kind of shots I want to get. The birds usually are taken with a 70-300mm Nikon lens (my longest), landscapes with an 18-105mm lens (my widest angle lens), and then sometimes I carry my 35mm lens or my nifty fifty if I plan to do some closeups or portraits.

  2. Hi Carolyn! I’m here at your invitation! My partner and I have talked about visiting the Canopy Walk at Holden Arboretum…thanks for reminding me it’s time to go…Great photos! Keep sharing…


  3. Love your blog. As a nature photographer myself I appreciate good photography. Thanks for visiting my blog. I’ve only just move to Uxbridge, MA a week ago so I have a lot of exciting exploring yet to do. Even the snowy Winters will open photographic material new to me, having spent the past 23 years in milder climates like South Carolina and Portland, OR. I look forward to following your blog.


  4. Oh Carolyn, I am really going to love your blog.
    My hubby and I live and work at Lake Kissimmee State Park.
    I love walking and riding all over LKSP our PLace at Rolling Meadows Ranch and Allen David Broussard Catfish Creek Preserve State Park ….LKSP manages all 3 places and RMR sits right in the middle of the 2 state parks.
    We have thousands of acres to roam and take photo of.
    I do;
    I look forward to reading your blog.


      1. That is an understatement.
        I have a page On Facebook that has most of my pictures from the last few years.
        We have been wet and flooded in many of our areas all summer so I haven’t had much to post.
        Lake Kissimmee State Park as close to 7,000 acreas, Rolling Meadows Ranch (where we live) has 14, 000. Much is about half of that is underwater a good part of the year now. It wasn’t a few years ago.
        Allen David Broussard Catfish Creek Preserve State Park ( Catfish Creek has another 8, 000.
        RMR sits between the 2 properties.
        LKSP manages everything,
        So , yes, we have a lot of space to roam
        Have a great week.
