Realistic Cooking Ideas

for Busy People! And sharing our life adventures along the way!

We have a great treasure in our backyard called “The Eternal Flame”. It is a natural gas emanating from shale formations. It is only one of a few hundred around the world of its kind. It is about a 2-mile round trip hike to see The Eternal Flame. It really has become a destination over the past few years with a lot of people hiking to take pictures of the flame. For more information click here and here.

Below are a few pictures and videos of when Greg and I hiked to see it a few weeks ago. The water level was not too bad considering all the rain we had the past few weeks. The pictures and videos were taken with my iPhone 4s.

    Question for you….we are going to be having a staff retreat at the park and I’m sure many will want to see the Eternal Flame as that is the theme of the retreat. Do you actually have to cross the creek at some point? The trails looks like like you do. I’m wondering for shoe purposes whether they will need to be prepared to get wet. Thanks!

    1. Bernice says:

      Yes, we did cross the creek and depending upon how close you want to get to the Eternal Flame you will be walking through water and rocks. Be prepared to get wet and of course how much water you have to wade through will depend upon how much it rains. If you have a walking stick bring that too. Wear shoes that you do not care if they get wet and that have good traction when they get wet. It is a nice hike and is a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy it!

        Thank you! That’s exactly what I needed to know!
