Speechless Sundays -- Sunrise At Hidden Pond In Springfield VA

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Ultimate

Hidden Pond Springfield VA

Members of the West Springfileld Rotary Club met at the Hidden Pond Nature Center in Springfield at 8:00 AM yesterday to clean and re-mulch the park trails as one of our frequent service projects in conjunction with the Fairfax County Park Authority. I siezed on the opportunity to snap a shot of the pond as the early morning sun streamed through the trees and mist was still rising from the pond.

25 acres in size Hidden Pond Nature Center in Springfield is part of the much larger 700 acre Pohick Stream Valley Park. The pond itself is one acre teaming with the likes of frogs, toads and turtles to name some of the residents. Its' educational programs are very popular with a wide variety of community organizations.

Karen, there is nothing like the lush greenery surrounding ponds in Virginia and other states north of Florida. What a gorgeous shot with the sun streaming down through the trees. That's the kind of volunteer work I would enjoy :) Good for your Rotary Club for keeping it clean.
