Hike 5

This is the snow that wasn’t supposed to start until 1500!

This is the start of the Tammany trail. Named after Chief Tamanend who died and is buried in Chalfont, PA on his way to Philadelphia to meet William Penn. He was a GREAT man. A story for another time.

First real rocky hike with my new Timberland boots. They were great in the rocks and in the snow.

It got pretty tricky in the steeper sections. I stopped often and made the top in 50 minutes.

Everyone said the view was worth it…not today. The snow got more serious about now.

The flat easy down was really peaceful with the snow falling. It was beautiful quiet.

The protected section along Dunfield Creek was really something. The pictures do it no justice.

I was really happy to see my car alive and ok. I was worried someone might break in to it. The area was pretty deserted.

I was so glad I came back with proper clothing and a pack with water and Cliff Bars. Next time I will lunch at the top maybe.

Tired. This was my first real hike, maybe ever. How in the hell did my friend Linda do 5 times this much every day? I am such a grom…

It was magic today.   🙂
