Roger Tory Peterson once said: “There has been a tremendous renaissance in nature study in recent years; it has been called a form of escapism, and perhaps it is in a way, but not an escape from reality; but rather, a return to reality; a flight from unreal things.” Reconnect with nature, and return to reality, by visiting the sites featured in RTPI’s Natural History Atlas to the Chautauqua-Allegheny Region (http://rtpi.org/education/naturalhistoryatlas/) I took these photos at one of these places, Point Gratiot in Dunkirk, NY, during a recent evening beach adventure with my son.
