I worked a day in the Poconos this week. While it was cooler there than at Mariton, I still got soaked. I soaked my shirt just from the hiking. My legs got wet when I crossed a stream that was deeper than my boots.
The Joe-pye-weed was in full bloom and beautiful. There were still Rhododendrons in bloom. Butterflies were abundant. As I slogged through a wetlands, a Common Yellowthroat popped out of the sedges and perched beside me.
This little Porcupine caught my eye as I wandered along a wooded stream.
