Asbury Woods, Erie's Little Treasure



I really like having Saturday night church because then Sunday stretches out before you (Like a really long slip n' slide...). I think Adam & I are more so daytime people and love being in the sun, so that works out well for us. It probably wouldn't work out as well for vampires, raccoons, and Teen Wolf as they are more nighttime people.

Well, Sunday afternoon, Adam took a study break and we headed out to Asbury Woods with Powers. We hadn't been since last August & It is beautiful this time of year!

Powers' booty as he sprints through the "chilly" water.



Then, Adam spotted some steelhead trout in the river. Then, Powers jumped into the river to try & catch some fish. We were laughing so hard that I didn't even get a picture of him swimming around, diving for the fish dadgummit!


These yellow flowers stretch out forever! The woods are filled with 'em!





A big ol' tree. Powers & Adam look like tiny little plastic figurines in comparison.



Do these neon pink shorts make my butt look big? "Yes!" I realized after Adam took this picture.



All in all, great day with the best husband alive & Powers with that lovely "wet dog" smell.
We big pink fluffy heart Asbury Woods.

Have you been to the Wintergreen Gorge by Penn State Behrend? It's really great for a hike/fishing, too.

Great pictures. I agree you should try Wintergreen Gorge next time...it's really beautiful esp if you've never seen a gorge!

Are the leaves not out on your trees yet? You need to get a PA wildflower guide-look on line. I think you look skinny and those WHITE legs-sans no sun for a LONG winter!
