poconos

best fall foliage weekend getaway: poconos. i've been wanting to go north for some fall foliage since last year. after a chilly, but absolutely daring motorcycle ride up, mike and i arrived at the lake house. this was me kicking back on the dock overlooking the wonderful view. this was after a nice dip in the hot tub that overlooked this view. jealous? i know you are.

must afternoon excursion: hickory run state park. hats off to jac and mike for finding our destination, which was chalk full of great activities. first off was the boulder fields. we were all skeptical of a field of boulders, but boy was it fun. a few of us almost turned our ankles running across the field. there was crawling in pits of ditches, but we all made it safely.next we hit the shades of death trail. ominous no? it was actually quite pretty with the last remnants of fall foliage. the 1.7 mile hike was just what everyone ordered for the afternoon. leave lined trails that twisted and turned along a stream.the gang broke off with several heading back to the lake house, but jac, mike, dean, eric and i continued to hawk falls which was lovely. we made it back for this gorgeous sunset.
all in all, one of the best weekend getaways so far. thanks crew. you all made the trip ab fab. when's our next trip? atlantic city? winter cabin goodness with sledding?
