It’s such a nice day today, we decided to take advantage of i and eat supper out on the patio at the table. The sinking sun and slight breeze felt good.
Every so often there are places that aren’t natural but turn into really nice places to visit or hike. Lake Grubb in Lancaster count is one of those spots.
We didn’t have a lot of money growing up. We didn’t do anything other than going to the mountains which was cheap and Sesame Place once a year because my dad got free tickets because his work made parts for them. We did often go to the nearby Neshaminy state park. It was mostly hiking but occasionally fishing at the marina. We went there very often when my dad got home from work.
We headed out to the NW river trail to check out the river ice. It was cool looking so I had to share some pictures.
I came across pictures while updating a hard drive and remembered this hike clearly. Some time ago. Probably 10 years ago we decided to go for a longer hike and geocaching. We were into that at the time and time allowed us to do it more than it does now. On this day we’d decided to go after one that was one we’ve wanted to get for years but never thought we’d be able to do the hike since it was something like 4 or 5 miles each way and when we started geocaching .
I came across some old pictures from when we did the thousand steps cache. That was a great little hike, and we hit the mountain on the perfect day to enjoy the fall foliage.
I came across some old pictures of Swatara falls recently. That was one of my favorite geocaches of all time because it brought us to the falls.
Last weekend we visited Bushkill falls in northeastern Pennsylvania. Our trip began on an ugly looking day in which it looked like it could rain at any minute. It was a bit of a later start than I would have liked but that happens some times. It’s only about a 2½ hours drive from here. When we arrived the sun came out and pretty much stayed out the whole time. That’s something we haven’t seen a lot of this spring.
I am having fond memories of going to 8 bees near Hazleton when I was growing up and even when I was older before I moved here.
Yesterday we did a short hike and some geocaching at Governor Dick Near Mount Gretna.
