"Our homes, imperfect as they are, must be a haven from the chaos outside. They should be a reflection of our eternal home, where troubled souls find peace, weary hearts find rest, hungry bodies find refreshment, lonely pilgrims find communion, and wounded spirits find compassion.” ~ Jani Ortlund
We really like it there and wanted to hike a bit and see if the snow geese were there yet. Middle Creek is on the migration path for Snow Geese, Canada Geese and Tundra Swans, although we have never seen the Swans before! It was amazing. Next week it is supposed to be even better as the lake should not have any ice on it by then, and that means more geese!
A very kind gentleman let us look through his spotting scope!
Here is what it looked like through the scope...
On our way back to the car we saw an Opossum in the field.... We don't know what he was up to....possums are nocturnal!
The Visitors' Center is a great place to learn about waterfowl and other animals native to Pennsylvania. They have a great interactive area for kids, we touched the pelts of beaver, otter, coyote, mink, fisher, red fox. We touched antlers and saw the nests of many kinds of birds. It was a great day!
