Susquehannock State Park

Today we went hiking at Susquehannock State Park.  We have been here several times before.  The park office is never open when we go and we still don’t have the stamp for this park.  It was 37 degrees out and mostly sunny.  A beautiful day for a hike!  We started out hiking to the two…

Fall Bike Ride

I was sorting through old pictures and found these from 2006.  They were taken on a bike ride down the Thun Trail.  We didn’t have a digital camera yet at this point.  I still took my film to have it developed and had them put on discs as well.  Anyone remember those days?  I have…

It also rained a lot near the end of Summer and into Fall so we missed…

Benjamin Rush State Park

Asters, Pears and More

My New England Asters are blooming.  They remind me of Mums.  I have also been enjoying local apples and pears.  They are so inexpensive right now.  I made oatmeal with chopped pears and maple syrup.  It was really good -a must try.  Lately, I have been hearing Great Horned Owls and Screech Owls in the…

Late Summer Adventures

I’m so glad the cool fall weather has arrived.  The clear blue skies are as crisp as as the falling leaves.  And I really enjoy listening to the crickets outside my window as I fall asleep at night. We recently enjoyed a late summer walk at Thomas Darling Nature Preserve.  It’s a groundwater-fed glacial wetland….
