NOTES AND OBSERVATIONS

– The Chestnut Hill College campus’ treatment of the Wissahickon is appalling. It’s like CHC doesn’t even know it’s there — there’s a soccer field, tennis court, two parking lots, a small alley that dead ends at a pile of dirt, and overgrown weeds surrounding a historic structure (tollhouse???) from the top of the campus to Germantown Avenue. Disgraceful.
– OH MY GOD. Hiking behind it in the Andorra Natural Area, I realized that the Cedars House is named for the grove of cedars behind it. WHOA.
– Cobweb season. Hallucinogenic drugs not advised.
