We returned to Conkle’s Hollow in early January. Snow blanketed the hollow while icicles edged the cliff rim. When the slightest breeze stirred the fir boughs, snow wafted down catching the light as it fell.
We stuck to the lower “Gorge Trail” which was covered with snow and ice; it might have been slippery, but we were wearing YakTrax over our shoes, so we didn’t slip at all (if you are unfamiliar with this winter gear, we discuss it here). A trickle of water was flowing at the waterfall at the end of the hollow. Afterwards we stopped for a trail lunch at the picnic area and then drove over to Rising Park in Lancaster to snap a few more winter photos.
