August marks the official halfway point of the Park Quest Season. Here’s what recent Park Questers had to say: “We had a great weekend out west. We started at Sang Run, enjoying the peaceful reflection. Then we hopped over to Herrington Manor for that quest, and enjoyed the walk and the stations. While there, we took a side trip to Swallow Falls, and walked the Swallow Falls Canyon Trail. I got some beautiful pictures of all four waterfalls. Tips for park questers: When we know the quest is art-related, Hannah carries a set of colored pencils to give her a larger variety of colors she can use to draw things. Tip: Research other non-Park Quest parks in the area. We loved Swallow Falls. It was beautiful.”  — Team Dynamic Duo: Terry & Hannah Sheely – first-time Questers
