My Today but not My Tomorrow

 

            Down the Wilderness Path,

            Narrow and twisted

            Places very constricted,

            I walk eternally forward.

 

            Many an inspiration,

            Many an illumination,

            Have I,

            As I walk through Sunny Patches.

 

            Many a delusion,

            Many a sullen moment,

            Have I,

            As I walk through Shady Patches.

 

            Around each bend,

            A different scene,

            Better or worse

            than the day before.

 

            A fork along the way

            Never to be chosen again,

            At that same time-

            At that same moment-

  

            What I will miss

            Down that path not chosen,

            I will never,

            Ever see.

 

            What I will see

            Down that path chosen,

            I will never,

            ever, see again.

 

            So one path - one choice.

 

            I must traverse it!

            It will be ever my today,

            But never

            My tomorrow.

RICKETTS GLEN

STATE PARK

 

(Top of Shawnee Pictured)

                       Ricketts Glenn is found in Benton, Pennsylvania.  All ten-thousand plus acres of the park were owned by Colonel Ricketts, who owned over eighty-thousand acres in  the early 1900's. Lake Jean spreads over 245 of the acres. It hosts over twenty-three varieties of birds, including bald eagles.  Some of the trees you will see are massive, many over five-hundred years old! Some ring counts have been as high as 900 years old!

                        The park is kept in its natural state. About five miles of trails provides astounding views of the 21 listed falls plus two more found under route 118. No matter where you look you will see the beauty of small cascading falls as the waters of Kitchen Creek and Ganoga Glen come together at "Waters Meet" then empty into Ricketts Glen. Make sure you have good hiking shoes as some parts of the trails are wet and narrow. The best time to visit is when the water table is at its highest. You can hear the full roar of Ricketts Glenn!

                         If you own horses a nine mile trail might interest you. Besides bird watching and trail hiking there is boating, education, swimming, and camping. You can even bring man's best friend- your dog.
