My trusty Nikon gave up on me. :( We visited so many states for so many great adventures, but it finally died. The weekend and coming days ahead meant I would be working with the iPhone. Hopefully soon a very early birthday present would arrive. :) We made a return visit to Forest County to hunt caches along a gamelands trail. they pose no risk when just enjoyed for their beauty.

One of the rare treats for me in working from home in Pennsylvania. It means I have a chance to enjoy a lunchtime walk at our property or a chance to visit some of the nearby lands for a lunchtime adventure. Today, I took a walk in the nearby state forest.

Zoar has become a quiet refuge for me. I don't have the opportunity to visit here often, but the quiet trails are always here. It was an impressive fall afternoon on the trail. The fall colors were still heading to their peak, but they were perfect for me.

I stopped after work for a cache at Dann Road Park. The killdeer had taken over the ball field near the woods where the cache was hidden.
I was headed to the Niagara Falls area for business. I wanted to stop a couple times to enjoy a great fall day. My first stop was at Headwaters Conservation Park east of Erie. This location has been on my to do list for a while so it was nice to be able to make a stop in the late afternoon. The wildflowers were a little past prime, but the trails were peaceful. Quest here while looking for a geocache. The ammo can holding the quest was about 80 feet from the coordinates of the geocache and hanging from a tree by a chain. It was hard to miss. It was also amusing to see the names of cachers who had signed the log book. The nearby cache was actually on the other side of the stream and not easy to reach.

We were finishing our dog-free weekend and wanted to find one more cache where the dogs wouldn't be good companions. There's a VW collector in Clarion County with a huge collection of old VW's dispersed throughout the property. The site also is home to an incredible number of old motor homes, but the gems are the VW's of a life long ago. I expect most of these would tell amazing stories if they could.

Since we were in Pennsylvania without the dogs, we decided to finally hike to a higher terrain cache in the area. We knew the general area and knew getting the cache required crossing Irvine Run. The cache supposedly offered great views so we were all in.
