So furst from the car we had to cross a bridge. Now tell me, dussn't this look like one of those covered bridges we see in Pencilvania all the time?
|We found the hiking trail. We be up high and the water be down low on the left.|
|So after a little while we woz down low by the creek afore going up again.|
|Wot do this be? Artwork on a log made out of rawks and litter? I has to admit, this is pritty pawsome.|
|Here be a better pikshure of it. It do look like the werk of fairies.|
|After we climbed back up again, we commed to High Rocks Vista with, you gessed it, SEENIKS!|
|Check out these seeniks - they has fences so you dussn't fall off and go SPLAT.|
|Well, eggsept fur peeple like this dude wot duss rawk climbing with ropes and stuffs. Not me, no siree!|
|Here be a sign wot tells you that you can go SPLAT and be made deaded.|
|And if'n you be made deaded, this guy and his cuzzins be waiting fur you! He be a turkey vulture wot noms ded stuff and we seened LOTS of them at the seeniks. They fly rite by rilly close and you can see their eyeballs!|
|Go ahead, fall. We be here to catch you. Hehehehehe.|
|OK, enuff of that. We is not falling coz we is not going on the udder side of the fence. Now back to the seeniks...|
|So here be the Tohickon Creek way down below unner the skeery rawks.|
|More turkey vultures sitting by the chains the climbers use waiting fur one to go SPLAT.|
|See how high up that turkey vulture be?|
|So we left the vultures behind and went on our way along the rim of the canyon way up high.|
|We found a trail down to the creek wot did not go straight down rawks and got down safely. Mom let me go in to get my paws wet coz the water woz not moving fast on the side and it woz a warm day. That be why I duss not has my new jacket on.|
|Oops. Later in the hike when I needed to wash my paws and belleh off I could not go in the water coz it woz whitewater and that be moving too fast and could swish me away.|
|Do you see those peeples ofur there on the rawks? They is not rawk climbers. They is CRAZEE!|
So we went back ofur that uncovered bridge and tried out a trail on the udder side of the creek. We woz akshually looking fur Doan's Cave, the hideout of the Doan Outlaws from the olden days back in the 1770's.
|In search of Doan's Cave on the udder side of Tohickon Creek.|
|Not Doan's Cave but Chrissmuss ornaments stuck in a rawk? I could not make this stuff up, furrends.|
|OMD, wot do this be?|
It do be a memorial and it say:
We did gib a moment of silence in his memory even tho we did not know him. Furry sad. We googled so see if'n we could find out wot happened but did not find anything.Sullivan James “Sully” Burd passed away peacefully September 9, 2010 at Ralph Stover’s Park. He was a man of nature, a barefoot mountain man, a climber, a man of rocks & trees, a seeker of truth and knowledge, of deep emotion and humble intelligence. He genuinely loved everyone he met, able to approach all with joy, passion and energy. He lived life fully with humor and honesty, living in the moment, giving & gentle to all. He opened his heart through his music, art and poetry. As we mourn our loss, we are thankful for what he taught each of us from his loving nature.
Turns out the memorial be atop of....
|.... a cave!|
|So we headed back ofur to the uncovered bridge (that red thing ofur there) where our car be.|
