Now this is one I definitely have to add to my list!!!

The boardwalk leading through the bog made way for an easy stroll.

Nice aquatic snag

After we left the park we were in awe over the fog that crept between the hills

An entombed rock lay at my feet upon the hill.

Just around the bend lay a quaint little train station.

Retired now, but it sure brought back the fine memories of riding the rail!

linrose> I have gotten the chance to visit quite a few parks. I was late to the digital camera scene otherwise I would have quite the portfolio of photos. It's really a shame I didn't cross over to digital earlier. We started visiting state and national parks in the US when the kids were little but I have no record I can share of where we went until about 2007. For whatever reason.... I just wasn't comfortable using a digital camera until about that time.

spruce> PA has a lot of Eastern Hemlock. I was surprised at how much hemlock there was. Why.... I don't know. What was really wonderful was that I didn't see any evidence of Woolly Adelgid anywhere I went. Maybe I was just missing it but.... I don't think so. I haven't had the time lately to keep up on that pest but I thought it had made its way into PA and maybe it hasn't?

Really nice vacation pixs, well done! I realized right away 'that's a huge rain drop'! I like everything in this thread, the RXR, the rainy ferns, the misty clouds.

I thought it had, but I'm happy to hear you saw no evidence of it on your journeys.
