17 June 2013 Wellsboro and Pine Creek Gorge

Wellsboro, Pennsylvania and Pine Creek Gorge are two of my favorite places to be. I was happy to return here as part of the Legacy of Conservation geotrail vacation. We usually park at Darling Run Station and walk the gorge trail to the Turkey Path to the top of the falls. We've been here every season except winter. I'm not sure which is my favorite, but today's weather was nearly perfect for capturing the beauty of the area.

We stopped at the top and enjoyed the views and the Legacy of Conservation cache. We actually remembered for once to ask at the gift shop to see if they had the Pennsylvania State Park passport book, but they were out of stock. ;-) While were were there dark clouds started to roll in. Since we had miles to get back to the geomibile, we decided not to press our luck and started back down Turkey Run. We stopped for a few pictures on the way down and were happy to have blue skies back by the time we reached the bottom.

After we left Pine Creek Gorge, we traveled to Colton Point State Park for more geocaching and a last look at Pine Creek Gorge.

This was a beautiful spot, and I really wanted us to find the cache. A lot of recent rain made us both think hard before crossing this fast stream. Sometimes, it's just better to enjoy where the cache is.

We enjoyed a quiet evening in Wellsboro. We stopped at the Frog Hut. We visited Wynken, Blynken, and Nod at the town's park, and visited the first few stages of a Whereigo highlighing historical Wellsboro.
