Finding a hidden treasure is a part of the adventure of being human. As a child, I was always looking for that “undiscovered” place to build a fort or to hide from my friends. The best treasures I ever found were usually cricket balls or marbles. I once found a bag of marijuana, but was assured by the older kids that I was hanging out with that I should put it back – not that I had any idea what it actually was.
This weekend, my family and I rediscovered a hidden treasure here in Philadelphia. Forbidden Drive is a walking, biking, horse riding path along the Wissahickon Creek that goes for miles. It is located in Fairmount Park and is a oasis in the city for those who know about it. My wife remarked that she could not believe that we were actually in the city as we walked along enjoying the view of the many waterfalls that cascaded into the creek. Here are some pictures I took while enjoying the path.
The most beautiful sight on the path – my wife, Deb.
