Nickel Run - it's a jungle!

The falls on Nickel Run. Great little falls (it's not that small, i'm pretty sure it's actually taller than Sand Run falls). Watch for falling rocks, a portion of the outcrop/overhang below had fallen fairly recently.

(Nickel Run is a tributary of Babb Creek, entering just downstream/west of Landrus.)

My trail had a sign! (for about a week...)

I pull in to Landrus two or three weeks ago and to my suprise I found a spanking new State Forest sign marking the head of the trail I do my sculptures on. "BEAR RUN TRAIL".


I took a picture thinking, "this would be great for the blog."

Glad I did, 'cause a week later when i came back it was gone! The pole is still there, but the part with words is gone. Oh well. It was nice while it lasted.

(actually, i've been meaning to email dcnr and see if maybe they took it down)

(UPDATE: as of 4/21 the sign has been replaced....yay again!)
