Bob and I went for a drive Friday afternoon. We drove to Allegany State Park via Bradford, PA. Our first stop was at Willow Dale Duck Pond.
From Willow Dale Duck Pond we continued driving on PA Route 346 towards Bradford, PA. In only a few short miles we reached Marilla Reservoir.
We walked the one-mile trail surrounding the reservoir. The trail, which features three wooden bridges, is wide and constructed of a tightly compacted crushed gravel surface. One of the wooden bridges is seen in the photograph displayed above, way off in the distance. From this bridge you can look across the reservoir and see another wooden bridge.

I used a telescopic lens to photograph the covered bridge
from the bridge seen across the reservoir in the previous photograph.
The majority of the trail winds through woods alongside the edge of the reservoir.

I liked how this tree was framed and how the light was hitting it.
Our final destination was Allegany State Park, the subject of my next blog post.
