OCTOBER 9th: Photo Hike

Lovers Leap 101009 038, originally uploaded by Kikigill.

One of my favorite things to do when I drop my kiddos off at their dad's, is to stop at Lover's Leap State Park and go for a hike. On this particular hike, I brought my camera and photographed the turning leaves and beginnings of autumn. The best thing about Lover's Leap is that there are still trails I haven't conquered, so I chose one of those this day. I found all kinds of interesting things:

First off, that's a steep cliff down to water that you walk along the whole time you are hiking...I was so grateful I didn't have Master Liam with me!

I found this really neat yellow fungus:

and this weird, almost roiling red fungus:

Cool moss:

Beautful pink quartz:

Weird blue wood...*what the heck is that?*

And then, a little outbuilding I was especially drawn to:

I poked around outside it:

And inside:

I wanted to hop inside it, but saw that water was running through the little house, and figured I better go around back to investigate. When I tried to peer around the backside, I realized about a third of the house was hanging over the cliff's edge! Good thing I didn't go inside!
