Micheax State Forest PA 3-12

This year I am planning rides to PA. Micheax to start off with
with a brief stop in Gettysburg.












I don't know what the name of this lake is.










For anyone who doesn't know, Gettysburg is a huge tourist attraction, and based on the number of parking spaces
is very crowded on the weekends. However, today is Thursday and there are very few people here.



There are statues and monuments everywhere and are very well done. You have to see them close up and in person. The pictures of statues don't look good but here is some detail that gives a better idea.






Here's a sculpture we can all appreciate.


Next up, Micheax Forest.

Hi Vinbowie:

Nice ride report and pics, PM me the next time you plan to be in Michaux, my DR is down for some maintenance, but it should be back up and running any day now, I can see Michaux while sitting at my computer, only a short six mile ride away.

Laugh Micheax State Forest

OK I made it.


Micheax barn wall.


My ride.




The Appalachian Trail. That's pretty cool.


I wonder how far..... I walked about 20 feet.


I road on these roads for a couple of hours






I am always looking for little obscure side roads.












Next, the lake that was my destination this ride.

The Lake in Micheax Forest

This winter while on ADV I saw this lake on other reports. Decided to find it myself.


Pretty good zoom capability on my camera.


This is the shot you have to get because everybody gets it.






Clear water.


Oh yeah !




On the way home.


Last one. Stoners..? Maybe I'll stay here.....Dude
