This is where I live

Ahh...perhaps I should clarify. There is what I live NEXT to. (A girl can dream can't she?) This is what I like to refer to as the 'back half' of Valley Forge. For all I know it could actually be the front half, or the right half, etc but we discovered this section earlier this year and lovingly refer to it as the back half. The reason I've decided it to be the back half is because it seems that far fewer people are found in this area. Most people tend to flock to Washington's Headquarters as well as walk the main path up near Varnum's Headquarters. During the summer, and even now there are tour busses in the popular areas, so we went on a mission to find more secluded walking paths for our two dogs. The beautiful home I like to pretend is mine is actually the Knox Estate. Down the road from this home (and the beautiful but tragically left to fall apart green house) is a single lane covered bridge that leads to a beautiful walking path along a river. In the summer this is usually quite full of people, but come autumn it dies down to just a few walker/joggers. This is where we chose to spend most of our Sunday:

It is probably the last time we'll be down there until spring, so until then I think we'll walk around the old Farm house (which I must sadly report is not listed on their website). I suppose I will have to get back there a.s.a.p. so that I can post some pictures of it on here. It is sooo pretty, and you can easily get to the Mount Joy trail from it. Okay, enough of Valley Forge. I really need to find something else to obsess over, as I have blogged about the place at least half a dozen times now! Hope the rest of you had a fun weekend! :)

I share in your love for Valley's just so peaceful and full of beauty! Hoping to visit soon myself, since it's just around the corner for us too.
