Rails To Trails Hike 5/27/13

Monday, May 27, 2013

Frosty Start

9 miles to go.

We're at the parking area

First Stop!

information booth where we started

We're going to the left but not all the way to the Turkey Path.

we're not biking today

Off we go!

The sun starting to peek in.

Not riding horse today either! Lol! (We don't have a horse)


Mocking Bird was chatting to us.

The geese were chatting once we got too close!

Moving right along.

Loved the reflection.

Where the river splits - the white water rapids goes to the other side now.

The end of the white water area. Obie and I used to canoe this river. The white water area when it's running at a higher level is considered a class 4 white water run. that's pretty rough water!

The only walking bridge to cross the river. It's on one of the few private properties in the canyon.

Like the cabin - Hate the chairs! lol!

mile marker on left.

11 Miles!! No, we didn't do 11 mies we started at about 8.5 miles. :) More mile markers to show you on the way back. Here is where we turned around.

Pretty yellowish/orange posies. I was a little too close for the pic though.

Just a pretty view

10 mile Marker

Fisherman taking... Pictures!

Another view.

Momma and the Pappas... and their babies!

Nine Mile Marker

A couple of horse back riders.

Darling Run - One of the tributaries that feed the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon.

OMG! We are almost back and we FINALLY see a mature Bald Eagle. My camera is so old I couldn't get any closer. Look in the center of the pic. Half way up the center pine tree on the right side of the trunk. There it sits! Beautiful!

Final stretch - Back. All out of coffee too.
It was a beautiful walk so quiet and peaceful.
Happy Memorial Day!
