Moon Lake State Forest

You don't need to go to Georgia to get a visualization of the Walking Dead set. Moon Lake State Forest opened this year and replaced Moon Lake Park of Luzerne County. 

The fields where my daughter played soccer are covered in hip-high grass. There were no vehicles seen for the first few minutes so it was a surreal seen. 

Now here's the amazing thing. For at least a decade Moon Lake Park was packed with campers - from all over the east coast. Despite the traffic, there were beautiful wildflowers throughout the park including pink lady slippers (not pictured), rattlesnake plantain (a favorite orchid!), wintergreen, and black cohosh (which is anything but subtle).
