Valley Forge Mt. MiseryWalking down Mount Misery in Valley Forge Park this morning. Looking down between the trees the rising sun glinted off the water in the creek below as it flowed to and beneath the old covered bridge.

The hues of the colours on display were magnificent, greens, golds, yellow, oranges, reds, greys and browns and let's not forget the azure blue sky.

Truly a moment to connect with nature and realize the beauty that is all around us.

Have a great day, and get out into nature, you will be better for it.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel supposedly it is called Mount Misery because when William Penn was originally surveying the land he had been given by the King he had come back to where he thought his boats should be moored on the river bank, climbing this hill he could not see them, and said Oh Misery!, climbing the next he then saw them and said Oh Joy! so they are called Mt. Misery and Mt. Joy accordingly. Best reason I have heard. But a wonderful place to hike and I can reach this from right outside my front door.

Hi Nick,

As soon as I saw your photograph I knew there was a story in those woods. You live in a place where there were many historical events. I am glad you're finding peace so close to your own front door. I'll bet the sound of the birds and the rustle of the leaves gives you peaceful thoughts on your walks. Embrace life and enjoy!
