Mid-October is a superb time to enjoy the harvest in Lancaster County and the beginning of the fall leaf season. After a hearty hikers’ breakfast,  join Bob Thomas for an exhilarating walk through this picturesque countryside of farms, one-room schoolhouses, and old mills, visiting many areas not often seen, and sampling some of the local foods.  We’ll conclude this beautiful day in the Amish countryside with an optional dinner at a local eatery, and a discussion of farm life in this landscape just an hour or so from Philadelphia.
