Frances Slocum State Park

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.

We also drove through Jim Thorpe where they were giving carriage rides during the Fall Festival that day.

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.

    Spectacular scenery and I really enjoyed the blackbirds! We used to see large flocks, but that doesn’t happen as often now, and there won’t be as many birds in a flock as there were in previous years.

      Thank you! It’s sad that the bird populations are in decline.
