The hike to Hawk Falls in Hickory Run State Park is a particularly beautiful one, especially in the fall, and especially on a sunny, crisp, 50-something degree day like this past Saturday. It’s a gentle downhill descent through an abundance of multi-colored foliage, the bulk of which hadn’t yet been shed (shout out to global
I’ve been to Stroudsburg PA plenty of times over the years. I had few good friends who went to ESU, and have very fond memories of attending a few parties at my one buddy’s apartment above the Sherman Theater on main street. I’ve driven through Stroudsburg more than I’ve actually been in town, especially when
Every once in a while I really overestimate how good of shape I’m in. Now to give myself credit, I probably am in the best shape I’ve been in for a long time-that being said, I’ve learned that I am not well equipped to snowshoe up a mountain in over 3 feet of snow. I
It always cracks me up that the Poconos used to be (still are?) a major honeymoon destination. This is no offense to the Poconos, which in its defense is a super gorgeous area, it’s just that romance is not something I typically associate with NEPA. I associate it with pierogies and polka music and Parade Day,
So was I the only who thoroughly enjoyed the “Polar Vortex”/Winter Storm Hercules hybrid that was upon us most of last week (sidenote: when did they start naming winter storms? Has that been a thing for a while? I’m not completely down with it)? I’m actually bummed about the fact that I just ran to

Whenever I hear about “cool small towns”, Jim Thorpe always comes to mind, even though I’ve only ever driven through or been just outside town (for a rafting trip two years ago). Budget Traveler agrees as it named the town one of it’s “coolest small towns” in 2009. Jim Thorpe’s a small town in PA’s Lehigh
100 Things to do In Pennsylvania: This is a big one. I mentioned in my 100th post that I was thinking of using it as a “100 things to do in PA” blog but then thought better of it A) because it just seemed like a sad things to do B) because I wanted to get
The full moon party in Lake Placid really got me thinking about how little we utilize the nighttime for outdoor activities. Skiing underneath a full moon (or lack of full moon in our case) was a lot of fun and a completely different experience then skiing in the daytime. And it’s not just skiing, there’s an abundance of
For our kayaking trip this past weekend, we left from the small town of Milford, PA. I’ll admit the day we left, it was early, and I was tired so I just sort of chucked Milford up to another Pennsylvania small town. We did have lunch at a neat place called the Black Bear Cafe, a
