NOTES AND OBSERVATIONS
– Heard an owl between Rittenhouse Town and Blue Bell Park.
– Absolutely gorgeous fall Sunday; most people I’ve seen on upper trails in one day this year.
– Ran into the esteemed Sarah Kaufman.
– What are the ruins of stone wall along access trail just below Orange Trail under Walnut Lane Bridge?
– Wonder how much of the trash below Walnut Lane Bridge is thrown from passing cars on the bridge.
– Scottforth Trail and Road are weird, man. No one would ever go here unless you lived there or stumbled on it.
