Sagamore Hill, Scusset Beach State Reservation, Sagamore Beach, Massachusetts, USA

Sagamore Hill was once a Native American Council gathering place, and in later years a World War II military installation, and now - it is a beautiful natural setting of field, forest, marsh, and swamp with a walking trail throughout.

Perhaps not as dramatic as the southern live oaks in South Carolina but the eastern white oaks have their own gnarled  charm.

It is still chilly outside but, the unmistakable signs of spring are at hand - green is appearing increasingly, migrating birds are returning and filling the air with their songs.

Bare branches dance in a spring breeze in anticipation of new leaves.

Even a dandelion blooms in early April - though it still drops to freezing at night.

The view at the top of the "hill" includes the distant Cape Cod Bay.
