Today we explored a small portion of the Perkiomen Trail system here in Green Lane, Pennsylvania. I doubt we saw more than 1% of this extensive trail system which extends 20 miles from Green lane at the north end down to Vally Forge at the southern end. What we did see was unspoiled natural surroundings on an exceptional fall day. The large network of trails is shared by hikers, bikers and horseback riders.
The Green Lane end of the trail is mostly a large reservoir shaped much like finger lakes similar to Candlewood Lake back in Connecticut.
This great blue heron swooped down from the sky and landed near us as if to greet us to the lake. He was so unafraid I was able to take this close up photo with a small point and shoot camera I keep in my hip pocket.
This late in the season we practically had the whole place to ourselves.
