Tiadaghton Trail Hike

Patches of snow dotted the landscape

On Sunday, Hubby and I hiked part of the Tiadaghton Trail near Ramsey.

A light April snow had blanketed the mountainside the day before.

But late snows in central Pennsylvania don’t last long and only an occasional patch of white remained along the trail, in stark contrast to the winter-browns of the forest.

Outcroppings of rock rose up along the trail like giants.

Others provided the perfect overlook for viewing the Pine Creek Valley.

Two of these overlooks held the remains of a campfire, which came as no surprise. Backpackers would have to search long and hard to find a more picturesque campsite for the night.

A small bouquet of flowers held its own against the snow. Look close to see the flowers, their pedals are closed.

The mountains of Pine Creek Valley radiate a beauty hard to surpass anywhere.
