Appalachian Trail Blue Mountain

Today I went on a 6 mile hike on the Appalachian Trail on Blue Mountain. Once again, it was a beautiful day. The trail was rocky, as is most of the Appalachian Trail in Pennsylvania, but led to a breathtaking vista overlooking the Lehigh Valley.

Here I am at the overlook

Someday I need to get one of those really cool telephoto lenses so I can take bird pictures. Until then, this is the best I can do. Can you see the Indigo Bunting on the branch? Other wildlife activity included turkey vulture, black vulture, interesting variety of insect life, and, of course, the chipmunk.

They say every tree has a personality.....

A path through the woods...
