OHIOPYLE STATE PARK - FALL 2001

(Updated 04/17/02)

We wanted to go to Ohiopyle during the fall to see the leaves change. We got there probably a week too early. There were some trees changing, but not all of them. Still, it was beautiful. One thing we're sure to remember for a long time is while we were crossing one of the long wooden bridges on the nature trail, we were 'attacked' by a swarm of Lady Bugs. They were all over!! Everytime you shook them off, more came. It was getting a little freaky, so we ran back to the end of the bridge. I tried to find out why they would do that and the only thing I could come up with is they were looking for food for the winter. Turns out Lady Bugs hibernate for the winter.
