Cooks Forest, Pennsylvania


While we were out in PA for a wedding, I decided to take the kids up to Cooks Forest. This is in Allegheny National Forest. This is all close to Clarion, PA.




Shawn, Amanda and Matt climbed all the way up the fire tower. It is a long way up, I had to put my 300mm lens on to get this shot. They are not able to go into the box part. I do not know if this is a working tower anymore. I imagine not.







Shawn was enjoying climing around a lot. He would jump from rock to rock, and even noticed a black snake while we were there. That can stay there too!!!











This picture is the four of us after we were climbing some rocks by the fire tower.
Then we decided to walk over to Seneca Point, which really is not that far from where we were.



This picture is the view to the Right (West) at Seneca Point. Years ago when looked out there, could see more of the river to the left, but the trees are more grown. Very interesting I thought.

There was a fire tower like that close to where my Grandma lived. We used to love to climb up to the top.
Ah, such fun memories you just brought back. Thanks
