More hiking joy! Drove about an hour north to go get some hiking in. I’ll spare you the monotonous monologue — here’s the best shots:

At the start:

We thought this was a covered bridge…

There is no way for pictures to do justice to the beautiful view across the valley up above High Rocks (about a 200′ cliff wall). That, of course, does not stop me from trying (and failing — no idea why this looks so flat, but there it is…):

Down in the trail, we managed to take a couple of wrong turns, and caught some of the lower cliff walls from below:

And here’s the obligatory milky falls shot — it’s been a long time since I’ve had a chance to take one of these shots:

The turn-around point for the hike was right down at Tohickon Creek — we dipped our tootsies and ate some lunch:

All in all, it was great weather, a great location and an awesome hike!
