This Week, Outside #6: The Ice Breakers, Makers

No competition for ‘photo of the week.’ The honors clearly go to this shot of the Army Corps of Engineers and Pennsylvania Game Commission rescuing a Berks County deer that had fallen through the ice. Amazing.


 

And in a week where temps cracked the 60-degree mark in some places, there wasn’t much — if any — ice left on the rivers.

And it was warm enough in Central PA that this Mennonite family decided to hang the laundry out to dry.

 

And you could easily get by outside in just a sweater.

Some parts of Pennsylvania were still looking like a winter wonderland, though, like the frozen beach on Lake Erie.

And we won’t be surprised if drones become the latest trend in nature photography.

And snow or no snow, this scene from the Forbidden Trail at Wissahickon Valley Park was so Stranger Things.


 

This too. Stay spooky, Pennsylvania.
