Nescopeck State Park is just a half hour from our house, unless there is construction on Interstate 81. So, it's usually a bit longer ~sometimes quite a bit. It is, however, always worth the effort.
The photo to the left was used for the Parks Photos 2008 Yearbook. Try tilting your head to the right as you view it; it often reveals an interesting portrait. It was taken at one of my favoite places in the park, a place where we are nearly always alone. It's as if no one suspects the beauty that lies just off the blacktop. I hesitate to reveal its location, although others should experience the seclusion. Nevertheless, the exact GPS coordinates are noted within one of the galleries, so it appears I am alone here, too, and the secret I fear to reveal is safe in Apathy or Ignorance.
There are many other great places within the 3550 acres of diversity know as Nescopeck State Park, like Nescopeck Creek and its great photo ops. Some of my favorite walks are Woodfrog Loop, Woodland Way, and the place above, which has no name. Of course, Lake Frances and the environmental education center are the crowd pleasers,
