Loyalsock State Forest Trail Perceives a Saturday

Alls well that ends well, and this long, long winter is taking its cue with a wonderful spring ending. This past weekend, John and I took advantage of the sunshine and warmer temperatures to go hiking at the Loyalsock State Forest. It's a gorgeous three-hour trail that ends with a waterfall.

(Disclaimer: The pictures are from a month ago when there was still snow on the ground.) 

That is a frozen waterfall, which doubles as an ice cave. 

On that note, I'm in the middle of Wild by Cheryl Strayed and as trite as the mention may be in the hiking world, it's a powerful book that vividly illustrates the power of hiking through the wilderness. While, I may never hike the Pacific Crest Trail alone, there's a breathtaking quality to any hike that can't be overlooked. In Pennsylvania, I am thankful that this sits behind me, constantly putting life into perspective.
