Pennsylvania is a huge state. Residents of Philadelphia live in Philadelphia county, which is .31% of the state of Pennsylvania. That leaves about 45,913 square feet of land left to explore.
A few weeks back, some friends and myself ventured west to pedal our mountain bikes around Rays Town Lake. On our way out of town, we found some rocks to climb up.
Shaffer Rock – The Hermitage
Our first stop, Shaffer Rock , lies just off the Appalachian Trail in the Michaux State Forest. Some many options here and tons of great photo opportunities. The shots below are a sequence of Len sending it.
James Buchanan’s Birthplace State Park
If you didn’t know, now you know: America’s worst president has a state park commemorating his birthplace. Rumor has it the route we climbed was actually climbed by young Jimmy a long, long time ago. This is Joe sacking up before paying tribute to James Buchanan by slaying this rock face.
