Mariton Wildlife Sanctuary near Riegelsville, PA (SE of Easton, near the Delaware River). Went to viewpoint (supposedly with a view across Stout valley, but too many trees were leafed out), then down the hill and back up again. Bougher Mountain is the high point with large bare rock outcroppings visible from the main trail.

Lots and lots of tulip poplars and sassafras, in the knocked-down-by-Superstorm Sandy (2012) areas (and many vines and thick vegetation), more variety in older woods that hadn't been logged or farmed, including a few oaks and maples, more hickory (including pignut and shagbark), beeches and sweet birch. Interesting place if you like the climbs and descents.

We also visited Chimney Rock but it wasn't what I expected.

Temps near 80 but less humid than it's been.

Walking 30:34 intensity: (1:06 @1) + (28:30 @2) + (58 @3) 2.75 km (11:06 / km) +24m 10:39 / km

Legs tired from hike so I didn't run along the Delaware Canal. Instead I walked and took photos. We parked near locks 22-23 (northern-most locks on the canal between Easton and Bristol).

At another parking area we looked at a different lock where a stream flowed to the Delaware (near an iron furnace). On the wood along the aqueduct there was a humongous spider just hanging out, not quite tarantula sized, but huge. (Not a garden spider, either.) Edit: maybe a female dark fishing spider. It did have long legs.

Nockamixon SP, bike trails on northeast side of the park.

Started at Tower Road parking lot, where a group of girls on bikes (and leader-types) were just leaving. I was intrigued by the mention (on the map) and photo (on the website) of the Gnome Home, so I took the most direct route there, along the lake on Haycock Run, Eastern Woods, and Jay Walk, before heading inland on the northern part of the South Park trail.

The Gnome Home was everything I imagined and more, as I counted 20 free-standing gnomes of various types (along with a couple of bunnies and mushroom ornaments), plus a couple of Godzilla statues each grasping another four gnomes. As I was examining the gnomes a small toad hopped through! I had a big smile as I looked around. No photos because I had no pockets for a phone/camera, but I'll look for the web link with the photo.

I ran on the flats and downhills and as far as I could on the uphills but had to take walking breaks, especially towards the end. One fall (despite wearing my hand-protector bike gloves) where I caught a toe on a three-inch-high stump.

Mid 70s to low 80s, and a loud chorus of katydids for most of the run. Tired now.


Gnome Home in 2014

I saw most of the ones pictured here, but a few were missing, and many more added. The "mooning" gnome was on the shelf 6 or 7' up the tree where the pirate gnomes had been. Another larger gnome was peering out the door...

4 PM


RideNox's view of the gnome home earlier this year. RideNox is the local MTB group that rides in Nockamixon.
