Schuylkill River and Valley Forge National Park

Today I went with the Appalachian Mountain Club on a 6 mile hike along the Schuylkill River. Afterwards, a couple of us walked a 6 mile loop in Valley Forge National Park. It was a crisp, clear Autumn day, just cool enough for a sweater. We are probably at the height of the Fall Foliage season here.
