A Sunday Drive

Bob and I went on a Sunday drive through two state parks: Clear Creek State Park and Cook Forest State Park.  Before we began our drive, though, we enjoyed a hearty “all you can eat” breakfast at The Farmers Inn in Sigel, Pennsylvania.

Here are some of the things that we saw, while on our drive.

    Linda, wonderful photos from your Sunday Drive. Does one of these parks have an old growth forest? I like the shot of you and the one of Bob. Can you climb the tower? The mountain laurel is gorgeous. Great post. Happy Memorial day!

    Love those rocks! My grandkids would have been all over them, too! Oh, and I think those of us behind the camera all hate our pics taken! 😉 (I agree that it is a good picture of you, though.) The mountain laurel is beautiful. We don't often see those here in Michigan. I do have a girlfriend who has some and they are beautiful!

    Glad to see you again Linda. I can't imagine how those trees get to be that big with those boulders they are growing in, how they were able to get enough nutrients when they are younger! They could already be very old.

    Linda, we have walked in this park and so it was wonderful to see this post and the photos. I can recall the long winding tree roots.
