One finial post on my trip up to Shohola Falls in Pike County, my GPS was telling me what roads to take to arrive at the Falls. I had a general idea on how to get there, but not exactly how. In cases like this, I have used the GPS many times to guide me threw the shortest way possible hoping that I don’t get lost.
My Google Map GPS is quite reliable most of the time. There have been 1 or 2 times that it took me out of the way, when I knew that there was a shorter way to get to my destination. But, that’s ok. When I don’t know any better it is a driving help to find where I’m going.
After driving North on RT33, the GPS told me to turn East onto RT487 and travel the road for 25 miles. It was only a 2 lane road, but in good condition. I had no idea on what I would encounter along the way. To my amazement, most everywhere was brilliant colors. There was very little open area’s. Everything was a blaze of color. I could have kicked myself for not having my Car Cam up on the windshield. I could have recorded some of the sights along my way instead of taking pictures.
After driving for more than an hour, I decided it was time to pull over and take a short rest, and find a place to pee. I finally spotted a open area alongside the road, so I pulled off. Again, I was greeted with these amazing colors. After looking around for a few minutes, I grabbed my Nikon and took these that you see. Even though it was a tiring drive, it was well worth it.
During the dead of Winter it snows up here pretty heavy, I am told. It is not unusual to have 2 or 3 feet of snow on the ground. A portion of the area is only open for snow mobiles. I’ll bet that it gets pretty up here all dressed in white.
Thanks for stopping by.
