Pulpit Rock and Pinnacle, Berks County, Pennsylvania
Today was a hazy day for a hike to Pulpit Rock and Pinnacle in Berks County, Pennsylvania. Most of our hiking was along the Appalachian Trail. It was a warm and humid day, but we occasionally felt some cool breezes. Despite the devastation left in many areas by last week's hurricane Irene, the trails were mostly undamaged with only a scattering of some branches on the path.
The early stage of Autumn hawk migration should be well under way by now. I didn't see any migrating hawks today, and I checked the Hawk Mountain website and their bird count was also very low. The conditions must not be right yet for flying South! I managed to catch a view of this vulture in flight from Pinnacle.
