Jehrico Mountain Park

My cousin and I took a little trip on his ATVs in Jehrico Mountain Park. There's now a nice little state run campground on this lake.



This is the view from the warming hut. Way in the distance, if you zoom in, you'll see some windmills.


This is what they look like up close. Windmills have come a long way. These are whisper quiet.



The last two photos are views from the windmill area.





I hadn't been into this part of the country since the ATV park went it. Many years ago I used to hike into this area. There were some old logging roads,but much of my traveling was through the bush. Some winters, if the snow conditions were right, it was possible to get into the area on a snowmobile.

The trip was loads of fun, but I don't expect to buy an ATV anytime soon. Rather spend what little disposable income I have on sailboats. Choices have to made.

This is beautiful country and I'm lucky to live here.

    1. We have a good mix of different types of trees that make for a unique color blend. It's not even peak yet.

  2. I've seen folks try it, but ATV's don't sail well.

    1. They do make an ATV that turns into a jetski, but that's way out of my price range.

  4. The one thing I miss about New England is the fall colors. Not quite as vivid here in Georgia.

    1. I really missed not being around for fall last year. Making sure to enjoy it while it lasts. Gets pretty gray come November.

  5. That really is some nice landscape. It would be a pleasant place to take a hike, and I didn't see a whole lot of indications of buildings or paved roads. That's a plus.

    1. I just had to walk down to the lake while in that part of the woods.

      Many miles of unpaved roads in these parts. One of the reasons I love it.

  6. Since I moved to Texas I sure do miss the autumn colors on the hills and mountains of Pennsylvania. Fall is my favorite time of year.

    1. You need some good hills to properly display the colors. Hope my photos helped out a bit. :)
