Off the Beaten Track

Today I thought it might be fun to show a few of the hidden treasures in Guernsey State Park. 

Newell Bay to Brimmer Point Trail

Oldest Log sign in the park

 

A terrific CCC culvert on Lakeshore Drive (photo from the Castle)

Drilled to split, but left behind by the CCC

The CCC built quite a few of these fire pits, although most  are out of service now, there are still several in the park

 

May have been many of these once - This seems to be the only one left

Sometimes it is the animals that are the hidden treasures.

Ugly and Beautiful at the same time


 

Hey there little guy

Late fall and early winter are a great time to be in the park. Not many people, but wonderful for hiking and doing the old, “Just lookin’ around.”
 

There are many nice turkeys in the park

Speaking of turkeys - have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.  

John C Fremont must have been standing here when he called this the most beautiful river canyon in America.
I took this photo as the sun was setting Saturday along Skyline Drive
