Valley Creek at Valley Forge


We went to Valley Creek last week. It's a creek area somewhere in Valley Vorge, that is 20 minutes drive from our place.


It was a shiny, hot and bright day. A perfect day for a random outing for us. After warming up the car engine, we were still indecisive where should we head to. Ended up we chosed to go to Valley Forge for a sightseeing.

The American Revolutionary War Monument

Valley Forge was the site of the camp of the American Continental Army over the winter of 1777 - 1778 in the American Revolutionary War led by General George Washington.


The site of the encampment became a Pennsylvania State Park in 1893, and became Valley Forge Historical Park on the 4th of July 1976.

The family park

The modern park features historical and recreated buildings and structures, memorials and newly renovate visitor center.

The cabin where the soldiers lived in the cold winter of 1777 - 1778. On called, anytime for the battle with the British Army.

We can drive car, cycling or walking for a tour around the encampment site of Valley Vorge

The park memorial visitor center's compound

The park was awesome but the creek was really supercool I must say. We spent the whole afternoon, hanging out at the park and exploring the remote part of the creek.

The clearwater stream

We also stumbled with a hidden stream and old bridges at the hidden creek area which we found out, we were the only visitors at that moment.

We didn't know this old empty house used to be the great French, General Lafayette's quarters till we got closer and saw the below signboard


an old steel bridge

Love the creek's tranquility and the serene view, we plan to come back and bring together our other friends for a picnic trip. This time with a blanket for me to sleep, at the river bank. Haven.
