How Far Are We From Confusion Corner? by 


Rider Park is a wonderful place for hiking, mountain biking and bird watching in north central Pennsylvania. This trail side sign lists some of the more interesting sites along the way.

Rider Park (Community Park) was a generous gift from the late Thomas J. Rider to all of the residents of Lycoming County, Pennsylvania. The nearest town is Montoursville, PA. The park can be located by taking Warrensville Road at the Montoursville bridge over the Loyalsock Creek. Continue past the junction of Route 973 by approximately 1 mile. Take the right onto Caleb Creek Road. Follow this road for about 1.7 miles, to the small parking area for Rider Park.

This photo was taken “handheld” with a Canon EOS 10D through a Canon EF 24mm f/2.8 wide-angle prime lens. The shutter speed was 1/180 sec at f/5.6. The camera’s ISO was set to 100. No flash was used.

Hello, My name is Gene. I live in the Susquehanna river valley (West Branch), in the mountains of north central Pennsylvania. I strive to produce photographic images that are simply “true” to the subject, usually with minimal post processing. If something is beautiful or interesting enough to deserve a viewer’s attention, it justifies being captured just as it is …or as close to reality as possible.

    Great sign. Looks like a very rugged area. Must be great for hiking.

  • Thanks, Wanda! It’s actually a fairly easy hike, not too rough and only a few miles round trip. There are some really beautiful overlook views of the valley from this ridge-top trail.

    Best wishes,

    Gene

    As I frequently think I live in Confusion Corner, perhaps I should swipe this sign for future reference…. Great stuff.

  • Thanks, Sheila! This sign directs hikers to the second “confusion corner” in our county. The best known one in Williamsport has five busy streets and a park entrance, all converging at one crazy point. Nobody ever really knows who has to stop or when you can go there. Unfortunately, the “real” confusion corner doesn’t have a street sign that says that, everybody just knows that’s what it is when they see it. LOL

    Best wishes,

    Gene
