With forests, sinkholes, cedar glades, and even wetlands to explore, there’s always something new to be seen along the hiking trails. Adults and kids alike will find something to love at the park. The park has several playgrounds where kids can play on natural surfaces or in splash fountains. The park’s newest playground was designed with ADA access in mind; ensuring a play experience for kids of all abilities.
For more many years my family has been going to Tall Timbers, camping and fishing. Miraculously this place has never changed. We have camped at numerous primitive campsites along Fishing Creek. But there’s one campsite that has always eluded us all these years. Just past Orangeville, it is about 3.5 to 4 hours away from Philly airport depending on how you drive. This campsite has all the important amenities like several picnic tables, tent pads, lantern hooks, nearby restrooms with showers, a really nice fire pit, and my favorites like being excluded from the other sites and being located right next to a mountain stream. Hamburgers and baked beans were on the menu for supper.
I have not posted much lately because I have been busy doing my online work and visiting relatives. I had five days without long-term reservations. It has a very big campground on a lake, and I was lucky to get a spot with water and electron only on short notice. The good part was that it was close to one of my cousin’s homes, so I was able to ship a bunch of stuff from Amazon to him. One of the problems with this life is not being able to have a place to get mail and packages. I was able to get a book shipped to a Fed-Ex Office but had to go quite a bit out of my way to pick it up. Anybody know what kind of a duck this is? I don’t think it is native to Pennsylvania, but a pair of them were wandering around the campground. My cousin and his wife live in a very nice gated community. This photo I took of a cormorant apparently perched on a duck threw us for a while. It was not until the bird flew off that we realized it was a decoy! And some birds I later determined were some American coots. And finally, have to show you my cousin’s pineapple plant. They had stuck the top of a pineapple in a pot of dirt, and this is what happened!
