This is My Pennsylvania - Old Growth

 Start at this beautiful Susquehanna County Park.
And park here.
 Look for this little pavilion.
And head for this sign to its right.
 Come on, you know you want to do it...start singing Here Comes Peter Cottontail!
 Head into the cool woods filled with old growth.

When you reach the third blaze which has a flat stone in the trail beside it, take about a dozen more steps and look uphill. 
Please be aware that the blazes in this park seem to be very temporary so your blaze count number may be different than mine.  Just be sure to look for the flat rock in the trail to find the four trunk tree.
 Doesn't this look like a great spot for a letterbox?
 Good!  There is now one there!
 If you reach this little arrow blaze leading to a really mucky little spot in the trail, you have gone too far.

Don't Look a Gift Horse in the Mouth

 Bergdoll Estate Ruins, home of Grover Cleveland Bergdoll
 The springhouse at the Bergdoll Estate.
 Take a break!
 Uh, oh, a tree is laying across the trail.
 This is a unique looking tree, we will have to remember it.
 Cross the brook.
 Come to the T in the road, the right side leads downhill to the Valley Creek, turn left and walk to these trees.
 Does that look like a horse at the base of this tree?

Stained Glass #6

From the cemetery driveway, look uphill to the flagpole.  Box is to the right of the pole, tucked beside Sarah.

This is My Pennsylvania - Yes, We Do Have a Beach

Elk Creek Access
Begin on the trail from the restroom side of the lower parking lot.
The trail is steep in sections.
When you reach the intersection featuring the Indian trail tree on the left side, make a right turn.
 Walk to the overlook and enjoy the view of Lake Erie.
On your way back, note this tree on the left side of the trail.  Check out the roots on the right side of the tree.
