REVEALED: Bjarke Ingelsí Brand New High Line Towers
Found some summer 2011 images at flickr of where I went walking today, which is the first time I'm seeing the place in full foliage.
There were about a dozen cows here around noon today, mostly sitting, and one cow suddenly decided to chase one of the three crows that was also amongst them. I live down the valley and on top of the next big hill through the center of the trees to the right.
Saw what I believe to be the same fox I saw at the beginning of my walk (along the northern-most fence) running through this field. Imagine that, seeing a fox run across the fields of Fox Chase Farm.
