Marilla Reservoir

Yesterday Bob and I went for a drive to Marilla Reservoir.  The reservoir is located along Route 346 in Bradford, Pennsylvania.

We walked the one-mile trail surrounding the reservoir.  The trail features three wooden bridges, one of which is a covered bridge.

P3240342 4x6After passing through the bridge, I turned around for one last photograph of the covered bridge.

The majority of the trail winds through woods alongside the edge of the reservoir.

Bob said that the ice was 3-4 inches thick.

Do you see the ice fisherman across the reservoir from Bob in the first photograph of Bob on the ice?  You will see him again in this blog post.

The sharp curve, noted in the sign shown in the photograph above, led to the second wooden bridge.

P3240362 4x6Remember the ice fisherman in an earlier photograph?  When we reached the other side of the reservoir, I was close enough to the ice fisherman to ask how many fish he had caught.  The fisherman said he had caught two trout and several perch.  I said it sounded like he had a good day’s work.  I asked the fisherman if I could take a couple photographs of him.  He said okay.

We arrived back at our car soon after talking with the ice fisherman.

This was our second visit to Marilla Reservoir.  Our first visit to Marilla Reservoir was in July 2012.  As we did last year, we enjoyed  walking this trail.  We hope to return again later this year.

    Wow—what a fabulous walk you two had. It was just gorgeous. I love covered bridges—and in the snow, they are even prettier. Love the photo also of the ice fisherman… Neat photo!!!!!

    Do you know the names of the trees which still have their leaves in spring (and the leaves are a light tan)??? They are in one of your photos today. I see those little trees all over the place this time of year and have no idea what they are. Thanks.

    Hugs,
    Betsy

    It looks as if you had a great day for a walk around the reservoir even if there was a lot of snow on the ground. The setting is beautiful.

    What a nice place to visit…I like the little covered bridge.

    I must say I love fishing, but have never wanted to ice fish.
