A Wolf Run Meander

I don’t know if you can call what Terry and I do “hiking.” It’s more like meandering. Because we are never in a hurry and stop for 1 or 2 coffee breaks and lunch and photos, we often manage an average speed of 1 mile per hour. Today, .9 miles per hour.

We also rarely stick to the designated trails and love to go “bushwhacking.” Today’s meander started on Wolf Run Road, scooted into a Norway Spruce plantation, picked up the Finger Lakes / North Country Trail, then back to the truck via Wolf Run Road.

Norway Spruce Plantation

I wonder how much life is left in these Norway Spruce trees and what will happen to this section of the park when they give up the ghost…

Norway Spruce Plantation

Many of these trees have giant squirrel middens under them.

Maidenhair Fern

I think Maidenhair Fern is my favorite of all the ferns.

Wolf Run Creek

There is a bridge over this creek on the FLT/NCT.

Milkweed

The fields were full of milkweed. We saw many kinds of butterflies, including a few Monarchs.

Black-eyed Susans

I love the look of wild Black-eyed Susans. They seem more delicate than the cultivated ones you find in gardens.

One of my favorite trees

I can’t seem to resist photographing this tree. I wonder how many photographs I have of it now?…

Glock

It was warm. He found a way to cool off.
