Finally, I’ll be able to probe the mystery of the off-limits new bridge at 7 Tubs

bridge.jpgWent to Seven Tubs yesterday and the mystery continues: Why did they build a brand new bridge but then mark it off limits to pedestrians and keep it that way for the last six months?

So my editor has given me the go-ahead to look into it so I’ll be contacting District Forester Nick Lylo and see what I can see.

Pics are of the bridge, which I took yesterday, and one of the Seven Tubs, taken in winter. A great tubs.jpgplace to visit when you’re allowed to visit all of it!

Seven Tubs Nature Area in Plains TownshipD

Seven Tubs Nature Area is a 500-acre site located in Plains Township. The main feature of the area is a stream called Wheelbarrow Run that flows through a ravine where a series of large potholes or “tubs” are gouged out of the underlying bedrock. The cascade of water has attracted visitors to the site for generations. Surrounding Wheelbarrow is a forest composed of plants and animals typical of northeastern Pennsylvania. Hiking trails lead to and around the Tubs area allowing visitors to enjoy the diverse natural life and hilly terrain of the area.

As I get older -- and I'm 70 now -- I seem to find more and more that nature is the true source of peace, inspiration and, most of all, the truth the passeth understanding. Though my knowledge is sketchy and superficial, I wanted to share it while I can.
