Yesterday my dad and I went for a hike at Furnace Creek State Park, about an hour and fifteen minutes northwest of Swarthmore. It was a sunny but cold afternoon – there was still some snow on the ground from Friday’s storm. There were some nice trails in the state park, few other people around, and a fascinating National Historic Site. Hopewell Furnace was an iron foundry started in 1772. A restored furnace with a working water wheel is at the site and was very cool to see.
