A Hike along the Tohickon Creek near Stover-Myers Mill

Tuesday evening a week ago, I went hiking along the Tohickon Creek near the Stover-Myers Mill in Tinicum and Plumstead Townships, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. It was a beautiful, mostly sunny evening for a hike - not to hot, not too cold. Below are some photos from that hike.

Mushrooms still intrigue me :)

By now, Tim, you should have a book full of all your photos from your hikes! You know that you can make your own??!!

The shot of the creek stone is very good and I love the purpley feather like flowers in the background. I will expect a personal tour from you and your lovely wife if we should ever make it up to Pennsylvania. I heard there is some chocolate factory there and some place with ringing rocks.
As usual I enjoyed this great e-hike, thanks for the e-ride.

Hi Tim !

Some rivers have ever wonderful reflections, and I like to think that maybe they carry gold powder and that is the reason why. These two views of the Tohickon Creek are particularly brilliant.

I like to see the different wild life being in another countries, however I'm wondering : maybe this mushroom is the one we call "vesse de loup" in France. It is exactly like a ball and may be huge. When young, it is edible. I don't know if it is yummy though... I never tasted it.

Thanks, sage. Some greens really do have their aesthetic pull.
