Lake Shore Trail – Little Pine State Park, Pennsylvania
The Lake Shore Trail begins at the top of the dam and then follows along the shoreline on the east side of the man-made lake that has formed behind the Little Pine Creek control dam. (Route). On the way up the road to the start of the trail we had been entertained by a number of Zebra Swallowtail butterflies. There were a number of different varieties of butterflies visible among the native flowers growing among the rocks and soil of the dam embankment but enough of a breeze was blowing to keep the butterflies airborne when we were in the area. I would return later to spend more time photographing the butterflies.
