Fall in the Forest

Fall in Cook Forest and the surrounding area is so beautiful. I was tempted to take a road trip and take photos on the way. My trip went from our property to River Road and all along Clarion River up to the Hallton Sportsman's Club (known as Hallton Hilton). Then, after lunch at Cousin Basil's near Rt 899 on Rt 36, I continued on to the Fire Tower and Seneca Point. What a wonderful day it was.  So many opportunities for great photos!

Coyotes- One of Pennsylvania’s most dangerous animals

When out and about on our beautifully-scenic Cook Forest hiking trails and State Park areas, keep your eyes peeled for a familiar Pennsylvania guest, the Eastern Coyote. Since the late 1930's, the domestic Eastern coyote has been a guest of the northern populations of Pennsylvania, ever since it migrated in from the Catskill Mountains-area of New York. With their expansion in the 1960's, several species have been located in virtually all of Pennsylvania's counties, with the heaviest concentrations being in the norther areas of the state. Weighing in at 45-55 lbs. for a male, and 35-40 lbs. as a female, Pennsylvania's coyote population is considerably larger than most of the common coyotes in the United States, also referred to as [...]

Black Bear in Cook Forest Area

People in Pennsylvania have experienced more bear sightings most probably because more of us have been home to see them due to the pandemic. Have you or someone you know seen a black bear lately - such as in your trash, in a tree or just walking by? I know we have here in Cook Forest. According the the PA Game Commission, black bear live in 3/4 of Pennsylvania making it more likely for you to spot one. It is reported that an estimated 20,000 black bears make their home in Pennsylvania. That is a lot of bears! A mild May probably drew more bears out into the open during the day. Black bears usually are out at dawn and dusk. [...]
