This blog post contains photographs and details of our second day of our weekend getaway. If you missed Day 1, you may catch up by clicking here.
We got up the morning of December 19th around 5:30 am. We ate breakfast at “Creekside Cabin”. Breakfast was simple fare — oatmeal and peaches with tea / coffee.
We left at 8:30 am to go for a drive. Our drive took us through Benezette, Driftwood, Sinnamahoning, through the Quehanna Wild Area to Medix Run.
We saw seven bull elk at Mount Zion Historical Park.
We saw two bull elk and many cow elk at the Benezette Store campground.
We caught the last moments of the first bull elk chasing the second bull elk.
We believe this elk herd is the same herd that we saw at Ruffo Flats the previous day.
In the Quehanna Wild Area we stopped at two waterfalls — the Wykoff Run Falls and Table Falls.
Table Falls was a new-to-us waterfall. Bob hiked down a steep hill to take some pictures and video of Table Falls. I didn’t hike.
I walked around to the other side of the Table Falls trail.
Bob returned to the parking lot via a different trail than the one he used to hike down to Table Falls.
While Bob was hiking, I found a scenic scene of my own.
We left Table Falls and drove to Medix Run, where we turned right and returned to Benezette. We ate lunch at the Benezette Hotel. We chose prime rib sandwiches and chips and, for dessert, apple pie. Our lunch was delicious!.
After lunch we drove to The Cross. We followed Route 555 west and turned right onto Gray Hill Road. Gray Hill Road turns into Mt. Zion Road. Continue going straight. You will see signs for the cross on your right. There is a small parking lot in which we parked.
The Cross is a place of worship. There are several benches in front of the cross where worshipers can sit, contemplate, pray, etc. It is also a place to memorialize someone. There are several memorials near the cross.
From The Cross we returned to ”Creekside Cabin”. We ate dinner at our Airbnb. We ate leftover ham steak, individual size pizzas and pudding.
