Fort Washington State Park and Wissahickon Creek Gorge

Today I hiked the Green Ribbon Trail in Fort Washington State Park with the Appalachian Mountain Club. It was a very brisk day for a hike, but with plenty of layers the day turned out to be quite comfortable. The vibrant oranges and reds of early Fall have mostly given way to the yellows and browns of late Fall, leaving the woods mostly golden with a scattering of completely bare trees. Later, a couple of us hiked the trails in the Wissahickon Creek Gorge, Fairmount Park, followed by dinner in the Germantown section of Philadelphia.

A few vibrant oranges can still be found
