Lodge at Lacawac Sanctuary

The Lacawac Sanctuary is a remarkable natural preserve with a wealth of fascinating flora and fauna. The mission of Lacawac Sanctuary is to preserve Lake Lacawac, its watershed, the surrounding forest and historic structures; provide a venue for ecological research, scholarly interaction and the training of scientists; provide public education on environmental and conservation issues; and conserve open space in Pennsylvania.

This photo was taken in the living room of the Victorian era lodge.

Seven Tubs – Images by Frank Burnside

The Seven Tubs Natural Area is one of my favorite places to go walking. It has something for everyone, and as good walking place ought to be, it is different every time you go. In the spring, the water rages down hill, pushing everything ahead of it out of the way. In July, not so much.

I visited back in June and again last week. Here’s two dozen picks from the two treks.
