A TigerTour - June, 2004

A walking tour of the Tigergrounds, June 5, 2004...

Front of the house, looking east from the driveway... Walk up driveway to garage... turn and look east along back of house...

Turn left to walk north between garage & 'tier 1' lawn...

At back of garage is veggie garden. Peas, 'maters, peppers... looking west...
Standing at far corner of garden, looking NW across new terracing and down into prairie. Walk N to stairway (at top of previous photo), down 4 steps, turn to look NE along upper path & terraces of NW slope.

Turning 180 degrees, looking south at new terracing. Then walk down to the boardwalk and look SE at same terracing... the bunnies love it!

Continue along boardwalk, deeper into the wild southern portion of the prairie, approaching the stream...

And reaching the footbridge, where the stream flows into the hillside... (it was so dark back there that the camera flash went off, which is why it looks so bright!)

Retracing the boardwalk back N to the stairway (which is off to the right), looking north along the grass path to the other footbridge and the shed beyond... Reaching the stream (can't see the water, too much overgrowth), turn to look NE up the lower path of NW slope...
Go up the path, still looking NE, where lower & upper paths meet. One of my favorite spots in the prairie. Stream enters under N fence at left... Switch-backing onto the upper path, looking SW along terracing, with the stairway down to prairie visible at upper right...

 

Halfway back along the path, looking SW at a large portion of the prairie... (I like this view) This is at the NE corner of the yard, not in the prairie. Trying to make a wildflower garden...
A bit W of the NE corner, at the edge of 'tier 2' lawn looking NW down the hillside where stream enters under N fence. And heading back to the house... all done!
