This weekend I took a road trip to Pennsylvania, primarily to see the Philadelphia Flower Show which opened on Saturday. While I was there I was able to stay with my brother who lives in rural Bucks Co., about an hour north of the city. It's always great to see my brother, but visiting him is doubly good because the area where he lives is quite beautiful. Until this weekend, I've always gone in July or August during the height of the green season. The landscape looked a little different this time. Up to two feet of accumulated snow lay on the ground, and maneuvering around the sizable potholes and piled up snow banks made driving interesting. Over the next 24 hours another 8-10" of snow is forecasted to fall on top of what's already there, so I said my goodbye earlier than planned to avoid having to stay longer than planned. Even though we are probably all sick of winter, I made few stops before heading home to take pictures of frozen Lake Nockamixon and the icefalls on Nockamixon Cliffs.
(Please don't forget to enter my Winter Walk-Off meme which runs until March 19th. I am looking forward to your contribution. BTW, I think I should mention that neither of the guys in the last photo are me or my brother, we have more sense, and less agility.)
