Some of you already know others may not but on March 1 of this year I had a heart attack. So I’ve been kinda taking it easy lately gaining my strength and yesterday I finally took a short hike in Ohiopyle State Park. For those of you familiar with the area I crossed the bridge above Cucumber Falls and then took a lesser used trail and made my way down to the Youghiogheny River. Not a far walk but definitely a steep hill to climb back up. After that trek I also made my way down into Cucumber Falls and out to the river. All in all it was a nice trek with my camera and backpack along for the walk as well.
If your ever in the Ohiopyle area I recommend you stop by Falls Market general store and restaurant. Every time I’m in the area I stop by for a drink and a great chocolate chip cookie.
Had another great day off and got to spend some time in the woods in Ohiopyle State Park. I photographed Cucumber Falls completely frozen over, the main falls and then a little in the woods. At one point I was in the woods and noticed a set of footprints in the snow. They were filled with the last snow and a little windblown but still visible due to the late afternoon sun casting its long shadows over the area. And I wondered to myself, perhaps this is the road less traveled and the road which I should be following.
This is the top of the natural water slides in Ohiopyle State Park. I just don’t understand why there was nobody enjoying a ride down the slides. Could have been that the temp was just a little over 15ºF.
