Wissahickon and Forbidden Drive Trails in Philadelphia

Rain had a threatening presence on my weather app since the day before.  So I decided to get an early start and make the short trip to Forbidden Drive with Muffin in tow.  The sun peaked out through the grey sky every so often, but that didn't make the visit any less fun!  Little signs of life crept out through rocks, in the creek and all around.  Though the forest isn't too colorful yet, the different greens, browns and greys were a welcomed sight coming from the city.  It's been a bit of time since I've left the grid and pavement for the trails.

Muffin bounded along ahead of me only stopping when she heard a squirrel flee the scene or when the ducks quacked below.  We had a great morning romp through Wissahickon and thankfully avoided the rain that still lingered in the forecast.  Currently, as I type, Muffin is having puppy dreams on the couch and has avoided movement otherwise for an hour.  I feel accomplished!  Have a wonderful week welcoming Spring in.

More after the jump...
