Over the weekend, I checked the Fall Foliage Report to see where we could find the best autumn color this time of the month. We decided to go hiking at Frances Slocum State Park. Frances Slocum was a young girl abducted by American Indians. History of Frances Slocum State Park
On the way North, we stopped by The Carbon County Environmental Education Center. Below is a picture of the bird wingspan chart.
The hawk below is blind in one eye.
We also drove through Jim Thorpe where they were giving carriage rides during the Fall Festival that day.
This is part of the trail at Frances Slocum.
We also saw some boundary walls built a long time ago. That was a lot of hard work.
I learned that Pennsylvania has the longest and most varied fall foliage season in the world. I enjoy the bright orange leaves the most.
It was a really fun road trip and wonderful hike!
Every Fall, black birds migrate over my home here in Eastern Pennsylvania. I enjoyed watching them this morning.
