The splendiferous weekend weather beckons everyone to “c’mon out and commune” with nature.
We did and here are some of the scenes we saw.
“Graffitians” find places for their canvases … practically everywhere.
The Northwest Lancaster County River Trail is splendiferous in its own right … more so on a perfect weather morning.
Walkers, joggers, bike riders and a-hole bunch of logo-adorned, tight-clothing cyclists were on the trail this morning. Everyone who wore non-logo adorned clothing was quite respectful and friendly.
The bike riders were courteous; the cyclists, on the other hand … well, let’s let this TripAdvisor comment be ours, too: “Of note, there have been some issues with road bicyclists using the trail as a speedy connector between points north and south. This has created safety concerns, as walkers and more leisurely bicyclists are not(and should not have to be) prepared to accommodate road bikers speeding along the trail. the Lancaster Bike Club and local authorities are examining the problem.”
Here are the “SIX GOLDEN RULES FOR TRAILS” etiquette.
The trail is a place for families with children and doggies, too. The trail isn’t a speedway.
Climbers were tackling the rocks, too.
Another Trip Advisor commenter noted: “Only improvement suggestion: add some water fountains and a few bathrooms (there are fairly clean porta-potties and a few places selling cheap bottled water).” Clean, maybe, but nearly filled.
Commercialism rears its head on the Marietta side of the River Trail. Notice the $5 parking is not a hot commodity.
Columbia’s Route 462 Veterans’ Plaza is looking like it’s been defoliated by an Agent Orange-like chemical.
