Thank you Brian England for extending the October Challenge to the Active Rain community. The purpose of this challenge is to show our 'personal side' to each other.
Living in Central PA is a perfect fit for me. I love being surrounded by the magnificent natural beauty and I particularly enjoy the abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables that are available at local farm stands and the farmer's market.
The photo below was captured one day when I hiked to the top of Pole Steeple - Gardners, PA. What a view!
This sacred spot is in Dickinson Township - Carlisle, PA
The Yellow Breeches Creek - Stuart Park at Barnitz Mill.
On nice days, you may wish to pause and relax on a bench, and you're sure to be mesmerized by those that are fly-fishing in the creek.
The Sunset over the cornfield is always a sight to behold...
On a Friday or Saturday morning, I highly recommend visiting the West Shore Farmer's Market in Lemoyne, PA.
The delectable aroma of fresh baked oatmeal/apple muffins and vanilla/caramel coffee waft through the air. Share a muffin and a coffee and treasure the memory for always...
The vibrancy of locally grown produce is a sight of splendor to behold.
Amidst such beauty, you'll find many gathered at the cafe tables enjoying precious moments of conversation and laughter.
I am so thankful for the abundance of natural beauty found in PA. The splendor of the mountains, the peacefulness of the creeks, the exuberance of the wildlife and the wide assortment of locally grown foods.
If you're intrigued, and interested in learning more about life in Pennsylvania, I would love to hear from you!
