Re: Susquehannock traIL
Little Bear ,as I recall it was an overnight trek . Parked the car at Crossfork and stayed in the hotel on the corner .Left in the morning on the trail and camped in Hammersley . The plan was to meet my brother in Prouty on the third day. Late afternoon of the second day passed through Conrad and up over the mountain to Prouty a day early and tired as can be. Very warm and buggy . Entering the park finding that it was empty of visitors .At that time there were picnic tables and fire rings . Also a bathroom . Now it is just a meadow with no tables or rings ,or bathroom. Anyway , I dropped my pack and sprawled out on top of a shaded picnic table before setting up to camp for the night and await brothers' arrival the following day . A gentle breeze about put me to sleep when I heard a vehicle approach from the opposite entrance. My brother was also a day early ! He had a cooler of ice cold Cokes,some bologna and cheese . Joy and a renewed vigor in my step. Awoke the next morning to the sound of thunderous gobble from the adjoining hills ! Great memories for sure . I believe the mileage for that was about 20 miles . Very nice trail in May .
Enjoy each day afield as if it were your last.....take the time to take it all in !
