Nature, wildlife and the outdoors have proven time and again to be a wonderful avenue for enjoyment, entertainment and education. Often alluring, on occasion incredible and sometimes downright astounding, explore the depths of Pennsylvania Nature.

Found this little guy on the side porch, early in the morning.

He enjoyed the Cat food, I lifted him.

We have a lot of wildlife here in the mountains, bring your fishing pole & camera.


Which one is the bear?

Nature is one great teacher. Unknowingly, without effort, nature and wildlife give us some of the most important lessons about life.
