Adventure5: Colors of Winter

January 31, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

During this local adventure, I take a look at winter color on one of our favorite local trails.  While western Pennsylvania continues to enjoy a 'real' winter this year (the past 2 have been rather balmy and generally snow free) we have been getting peppered with a few warm days sprinkled in - a nice break to get out without having to bundle and layer up!  And while for the most part we've enjoyed snow on the ground for the past month or so, we haven't gotten a ton so when it does warm up, the snow disappears and the typical western Pennsylvania winter generally looks, well --- drab (no way to sugar coat that).   During the last warm up, we got out to one of our favorite trails - the Roaring Run trail along the Kiskiminetas River.  And if you take a good look, the colors of winter (without snow) are not so drab after all ... take a look!

The afternoon sun, low in the sky provided shade along most of the trail.  But blue skies reflecting on the water added some beautiful color.  

And finally a new addition to the trail, a wishing well (recently completed eagle scout project).
