On my parents’ last day on the east coast we decided to go to Robert H. Treman State Park.
As we entered the trail, my dad started looking for a makeshift walking stick to help with the hike. My mom followed suit. Once they found their walking sticks, they were ready to go!
There were several trails to choose from, but we decided to take the Rim Trail, which went up in the trees instead of alongside the gorge. Usually, I choose the gorge trail because I love being near the water but there is something to be said about hiking within the trees. It’s beautiful in its own way.
The moss on the fallen trees were pretty cool.
I have about 100 pictures that look like the one below. I simply couldn’t help myself! It was too beautiful not to try and capture it!
We came across this fallen tree in the middle of the path.
So of course I try to lift it.
The cool thing about this path is we got to see the different types of vegetation and creatures living in them! There were many brown little frogs hopping about (that I unfortunately didn’t get on camera) and really well hidden spiders.
We also came across this pulley system that I at first thought was supposed to be for ziplining.
At the highest point of the trail there was an overlook of the falls.
At the lowest point of the trail, you end up at the bottom of the falls and there we saw many people swimming, relaxing by the rocks, and just generally enjoying the view.
It was a great end to my parents’ visit! Next adventure for me is Costa Rica while the next adventure for them is Alaska!
