Waiting For the Ferry





The Millersburg Ferry is the last ferry in service on the Susquehanna River. It is also the last operating stern paddlewheel in the US. We first rode the Millersburg Ferry on my trip back east to meet Ali's family many years ago. Our last ride had been on a visit back home to give our station wagon to our nephew. Trips across are always a fun time. Today The Falcon was in service while the Roaring Bull was tied off at dock. These images show The Falcon making its way from the western bank to the eastern bank.

Tanbark Trail to Chapman



Tanbark to Chapman is 11 miles round-trip. We were hoping to make it without too much rain. There were sprinkles on the way out. By the time we started our return it was so dark and cloudy that we were just hoping for a mile or two before the real rain. We made it most of the way. The way out and the way back are two different cameras, but give a good view of the changing weather.

Allardale on a Cold Day


It looks much different during the winter than the lush green of early summer.

Lake Erie at Dusk


I stopped by a pull-off between Silver Creek and Dunkirk to enjoy a few minutes of a very cold evening.

Scripture Rock


The rocks in Jefferson County Pennsylvania are the record of one man's journey through life and finding god. After a near fatal injury in a drunken bar fight, the man spent the remainder of his weekends in the woods of Jefferson with a Bible and a chisel transferring the words of the Bible onto the large rocks of the county.

Rouse Estate Stewardship Woods


We arrived in town about 30 minutes before the storms passed through. The rain was constant and heavy. In the end, our stream was about 80% of flood state, our power had been out, and was now just flickering. What else is there to do but geocache? We missed the cache across the road, but these woods made a nice panorama.

Beaver Meadows


It rained on and off during the day so when we arrived here the place was ours. Beaver Meadows is a very quiet place to walk and enjoy your surroundings. There are some small reservoirs, some outstanding woods, and a nice wetlands area with a floating boardwalk. It is longest boardwalk of this type I have ever seen. Since it floats, it moves as you walk. It is fun, but wear something waterproof, or your feet will be wet :-).

Fairview - Venango County


I don't know what this area is called, but about one quarter of the way from the right is a cemetery called Fairview Cemetery. The photo is taken from the parking area for a State Game Lands. I thought the field of old corn stalks against the blue sky was interesting.

Ladue



This place holds a lot of memories for me. If I added up all the days I spent here in my youth, it would be at least a half-year of my life. It was empty on this late fall afternoon and a good time for quiet reflection.

Kahle Lake Venango and Clarion Counties


I really liked the late afternoon sun and the way it played with the clouds and the light in the arc of trees. We found on of three caches at the lake so we'll be back again. It was a quiet place to visit.

Castalia Quarry





The Castalia Quarry stopped operations a few decades prior. The Erie County (Ohio) Park System has taken the land and converted it into a large park. There are wooded trails rimming the gorge and a large observation deck that faces northwest toward Lake Erie. It's a great place to hike and crawl around. There are caches everywhere and a bonus earthcache on the floor. I thought it made a good panorama subject.

Bedford Gorge


We stopped here for a walk after an evening of caching. The falls were running well since we had rain within the last few days. In the northeast Ohio world of local park systems controlling access and limiting liabilities, this place is interesting since you can walk along the stream as far as you dare. As we left this evening, there was a group coming from the huge tunnel in the park.

Overlook Wysox to Towanda


We stopped at this overlook to find a cache and search for a benchmark. Like most of the week, it was quite hazy. The overlook gave a nice view of the Susquehanna River.

Euclid Creek - 19 June 2007


Euclid Creek is a tame little creek that passes through Cleveland Metroparks. For about 320 days of the year, you can cross it on foot. This evening was not one of those days. Thunderstoms from the afternoon filled the creek and left it raging. I spent part of the evening walking the trail above the creek.
