Mariton Wildlife Sanctuary

Today we went on an eight mile hike starting along the Delaware River in Riegelsville, PA. We walked along the river for a bit to the Mariton Wildlife Sanctuary, and then hiked through the park with beautiful overlooks of the Delaware River. The day was chilly and bright, but with a surprising amount of elevation gain in the park we soon warmed up and were removing layers! After our hike we stopped at the cozy Riegelsville Inn for a late lunch and warmed ourselves by the wood fireplace.

There are no signs of Spring yet. The colors in the park were brown and grey, with the occasional green of a pine.

There were several beautiful overlooks of the Delaware River. This view is probably only available in winter, when foliage doesn't block the vista.
