Hiking Aylesworth, Jermyn, PA – April 2018

Eliza and I are forcing spring to happen by spending as much time outdoors as we can.

Eliza captured this photo of me on our hike last week. I think it is a good representation of what I look like on hikes.

Hiking in Seven Tubs Nature Recreation Area, Bear Creek, PA – April 2018

On Saturday Eliza and I went for a hike around Seven Tubs, a series of “tubs” carved out of the bedrock by glaciers a few thousand years ago. Beautiful area, beautiful day.

Kevin Nealon has a YouTube channel where he goes hiking with famous people. 2018 y’all.

In late-July I stumbled upon a large mound of sand at a construction site that had several large wasps digging holes. I had never seen a wasp that large in my life. Turn your volume up for the tail end of this audio bit.

Field of gold – July 2017

It is easy to take for granted the amazing landscapes that the area I live in affords. Much of what I see during my short hikes would be jaw dropping to lifetime city dwellers. I need to keep reminding myself of that.

E17: Crickets in a field

In late-July I went for a hike and recorded this audio bit.

Not a dinosaur egg – July 2017

You have to wonder, though, what amount of water moving at what speed over what duration would it take to make this stone look like this? I’m no geologist but I’d say a lot, fast, and a fair amount of time geologically speaking.

Weeds – July 2017

Summertime hikes offer a completely different experience to early spring hikes. Most of this grass was only a few inches high in early spring, about a foot or so in June, and in this photo in late-July it is at least 3-feet high.
