Hickory Run State Park
This weekend the weather was unseasonably warm, in the forties, a perfect opportunity for some winter hiking in Hickory Run State Park.
Rhododendrons line the creek, a perfect contrast of dark green against white snow and flowing water.
I love forests of conifers providing plenty of greenery, even in winter.
The creek is partially frozen in spots.
I love the sound of hiking along water.
Sand Spring Lake was frozen over, but starting to thaw, creating patterns of swirls in the ice.
