Take a Hike! Robert H. Treman State Park

Annnnddd we’re back to another obnoxiously long Take a hike! post.  (My faves. <3)  This time, I explored Robert H. Treman State Park.  After this hike, I was salivating to go back in the warmer months and swim in all of the gloriously blue pools.  They look wonderfully refreshing.  As for yesterday, the forest was on fire with autumn colours.  Amazing.

I did a loop that started on the Gorge Trail

Which heads immediately up the ridge along a set of concrete stepping stones

The beech trees are ubiquitous here, and their leaves are a very bright yellow right now.

I miss my black birch, but mostly because it smells so wonderful

Found a maraschino millipede friend

More steps

There is a fence on both sides because there is a sheer dropoff on both sides of the trail here. I wouldn’t want to meet a bear in the fence, though.

The red pine trail…you are rewarded for the grueling uphill hike by these spectacular pines. The whole forest has a reddish hue to it.

And of course, plenty of beech to lighten the mood

Lucifer falls…I got this photo by hanging over the cliff on a hemlock. Do not try this at home.

The rim trail was even more colourful, if that is possible

IMG_6755

Wow, colour!
