Week 6   Skillman Park, 20120211 NIKON D40 6412

I chaired the Village Elementary and Lower Middle School Invention and Science Convention this year along with two energetic and committed women. The event was scheduled to start at 9:15 but we were convening at the High School at 8AM. Because it was snowing I gave myself a little extra time to navigate the local roads.

I wanted to get capture some sort of snow scene and I drove along the roads I kept looking for a place to stop to capture the experience of the snow falling on the canopy of trees lining the roads. I was almost to the High School when I noticed the entrance for Skillman Park.

The park has a long storied storied history that you can read about on the township website. The park was once the site of a psychiatric care facility which eventually fell into disrepair. The township and the county are working to restore the space to its former beauty.
