It was a decent Sunday, so I thought I’d try a Pennsylvania hike for a change. Not – a rocky one like Hawk Mtn – but something different. The AllTrails app lists a 5 mile hike on East Shore trail, Eagle Pass and Cliff Trail at Prompton State Park as ‘moderate’. Only an hour away, so off I went.
The joy of autumn 🍂 hiking! Crisp leaves crunched underfoot, frightening a flock of turkeys as I approached. The well worn path was hidden beneath the colorful carpet. This caused me to retrace my steps a couple times to return to the marked trail.
So happy to enjoy the lovely colors and feel of autumn!
Love old stone walls!
Heading downhill, these stone ledges concerned me at first, but looking back at them, I can see how they are terraced, making it an easy drop!
I also say goodbye to my mesh scooter jacket, acquired this year for those oh-so-hot summer days we had. Put away for the winter, I’ll bring it out for the hot days in 2016. It’s rather feminine, unlike my warmer jacket, and got a little bit of attention, although the scooter gets most of the attention around here!
The leaves are always great color practice, which I definitely can use.
I also said goodbye to this sketchbook, started in March 2014, finally filled it with these two sketches tonight.
At least I can say hello to (several!) new sketchbooks! 😉
