Lake Grubb

Saturday, Jul 24, 2021
Sometimes there’s unnatural places that turn into really nice things. Nature reclaims them and they become awesome places to visit. Lake Grubb in Hempfield township is a great example of one of these types of places. The lake was an old iron ore mine from the 1800s. The pit has filled with water now creating a lake that from what I have read is up to 180 feet deep. Stupid things such as this interest me.

Conoy White Cliffs

Continuing with the uploading some old pictures that I found.. I had stumbled on a web page or something about this area years ago but it didn’t seem like there was a legal way to access it back then. Fast forward to now after lots of work they have built the Northwest Lancaster River trail. The trail is a true asset to the area and it is great to see it get so much use.

Rattling Run Trail Hike at Stony Valley

Sunday, Dec 31, 2017
I came across pictures while updating a hard drive and remembered this hike clearly. Some time ago. Probably 10 years ago we decided to go for a longer hike and geocaching. We were into that at the time and time allowed us to do it more than it does now. On this day we’d decided to go after one that was one we’ve wanted to get for years but never thought we’d be able to do the hike since it was something like 4 or 5 miles each way and when we started geocaching .

Remembering Thousand Steps Trail Hike

Saturday, Dec 30, 2017
I’ve come across some old pictures while cleaning up old stuff on my hard drive in preparation for a hard drive upgrade so I thought I’d share some pictures and what I remember about the hike. Of course a geocache originally brought us here but it’s definitely well worth a visit for just the hike. We say we’re going to go back and hike it again every fall but it just never happens for various reasons.
