My PA Weekend Fun 2017 Checklist

I used to begin every year with a list of travel/weekend fun related New Year’s Resolutions, and then end the subsequent year going over each one to see if it was a success or a failure.

Weekend Trip Idea: PA GRAND CANYON

I’ve never been to the Pennsylvania grand canyon and to be honest, I often forget it exists until someone mentions it to me.  Luckily for all of you, one of my students was raving about camping and hiking up there for the weekend. The PA Grand Canyon, also known as the Pine Creek Gorge, for
