Brilliant Colors

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.

Orange, Greens, & light Browns.

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.

I just love this time of the year!

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.
