Description

Added by Tom Zittergruen

During the spring months, Robinson Bird Sanctuary is covered with Bluebells, one of the best-loved wildflowers there is. This dirt covered trail is perfect for all hiking types and is a gorgeous place to take pictures and explore.

This year for Earth day, I decided to hike one of my favorite trails near Waterloo, Robinson Bird Sanctuary. I love exploring this area during the spring season because of the beautiful Bluebell flowers that cover the woods. The colors are so bright and imaginative on the trail, it makes it feel as if you're hiking through a fairy tale. I wanted to capture the trails beauty during spring blossom. So I made a quick video highlighting the area: you can watch it here!
