Allegany State Park is a great place for a long, energetic ramble.
With all kinds of interesting rock formations.
Like something from Middle Earth...
Fallen trees (tons of them - must have had a big storm)
And fungi we didn't realise were edible (they're called chicken of the woods) - we were too busy looking for non-existent chanterelles.
But wait - who's that peeping out from behind a tree?
The white tail deer seemed totally unafraid. Perhaps used to handouts from park visitors.
She (I assume) was definitely very interested in us. She stayed around for several minutes. And came closer and closer.
But I think what she was really fascinated by was our doughty companion - the celebrity rescue Yorkie, Charlie, whom you may have met before, visiting from New York City and who was racing ahead of us most of the way, putting us to shame.
"Whossat? Never seen anything like you before!"
"Don't know what all the fuss is about."
