Mother's Day at Shenk's Ferry

Mother's Day, we went on a hike to the Shenk's Ferry Wildflower Preserve .  It is home to about 73 different species of wildflowers.   The location gets its name from the Shenk family, who used to operate a ferry across the Susquehanna River. When one gets down to the creek, it is much cooler.  You can feel cool air coming through the piled rocks providing much appreciated respite.  I have just started hiking again due to my orthopedic issues... I found it very helpful to walk with two hiking sticks.  It feels a little like going cross country skiing but it helps.
