Prince Gallitzin State Park

At Prince Gallitzin State Park, the forested hills of the Allegheny Plateau cradle sprawling Glendale Lake. Vistas offer scenic views of the 1,635-acre lake with its 26 miles of shoreline, which is a favorite of anglers and boaters. Campers flock to the large campground and also enjoy hiking and other outdoor activities. The varied habitats of the park make it a home for many types of wildlife, and a rest stop in the spring and fall migrations.

I have always enjoyed Apple Cider Fest. This year was bananas though. It took over an hour to go 4 miles in bumper to bumper traffic! Need better traffic control.

We enjoyed our Wildlife watch. Our guide was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. We saw where the bald eagle nest is and she helped us identify the wildlife at Prince Gallitzin Park that we have been seeing on our many kayaking adventures.

The presenter moved about the audience assisting where she was needed. Pointed out various objects in the sky and was very knowledgeable.
