I was FINALLY able to get away from the city for a day and deep into Somerset County. I can’t believe it really took all these months to get there–as there was always a roadblock in some form or another. Like everyone, we’ve been trying to stay in and limiting our time away from home, and with schedules always changing, it was hard to find the time to get up to the cabin. I was finally able to with my sister, where we enjoyed a wonderful fall October afternoon hiking on the trails of Laurel Hill State Park.
We found this little private, family cemetery hidden in the woods. Markers dated back to the 1850s. It was so stunning to see this among the tall trees and rustling leaves. I wonder how many more little family plots have just been lost to time?
I wish I could have spent more time exploring this trail, but I’ll be back for sure. There are all kinds of hiking and biking areas in the Laurel Mountains, and I’m hoping next year to do a little more adventuring.
