Along the Wissahickon

As neighbors of the city of Philadelphia, we are so fortunate to be able to share in the oasis of the splendid, storied, protected 1,800 acres of the of Wissahickon Valley Park along Wissahickon Creek. Since we moved here in 1992, our family has enjoyed countless moments and activities in these hills, along these paths and beside these waters. Knowing that in eight short minutes, I can drive from my home and be hiking among these ancient poplars, oaks and hemlocks, feeling far, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city of Philadelphia while still remaining in it...is always hard for me to believe. If you haven't done so already...take a break and enjoy some of these autumn colors and all this precious land has to give us.
