PA’s Hidden Oasis (Big Spring)

**UPDATE** It has come to our attention that someone vandalized the rocks at Big Spring. For this reason we have updated this post and removed directions on how to get there since it is on private property. It feels good to be lost in the right direction. It was also to find one of the most beautiful places we have gone together. Even...

Wintergreen Gorge

Presque Isle & Wintergreen Gorge (Erie, PA)

While Kayla is the one who typically writes the blogs, I decided to go ahead and write this one as she surprised me for my birthday with this trip. The trip to Erie started out with her telling me we were going somewhere for my birthday and to pack enough clothes for 2 days. Once in the car and realizing we were going north I had an idea...

McConnells Mill State Park

Some people say, “Sometimes the best things are right in front of you, it just takes some time to see them”.

This was a great day trip due...

Kinzua Bridge

Kinzua Bridge – You Don’t See This Everyday!

The greatest part about bridges is you never know what’s on the other side, what steps your about to take, and your always walking towards a new place. In this case, this bridge we decided to walk across came crashing down in 2003. Kinzua Bridge was partially ruined by a tornado and once was the longest and tallest railroad...

A Day At Conneaut Lake

Another adventure in the books….This experience led us to Conneaut Lake, located in Pennsylvania. Conneaut was only an hour and a half drive from Pittsburgh and the drive was beautiful! Bob actually has been here before as a kid and we thought it would be a great day to check it out many years later. Conneaut Lake is connected to...

Ohiopyle is known for the the natural scenery and the Youghiogheny River Gorge. Ohiopyle has many things to do for being so close to the city and something for the whole family to do. Ohiopyle has hiking, white water...
