Franklin Gulf Hike November 8 2015

Franklin GulfSeven hikers enjoyed exploring Franklin Gulf, Erie County park in Eden on November 8th. It was a beautiful fall day, with temperatures above normal for November, but perfect for hiking. Most of the trees were bare, which allowed for the sun to filter through the forest. The water level was low in the creek ,so a portion of the hike included walking in the creek bed. Here we enjoyed seeing the layered shale cliffs, crystal clear water pools, and shale ledges filled with oak leaves and acorns. Thanks to all who attended this hike. Submitted by Kim Newlands
