There is no alcohol allowed in PA state parks…but judging by the size of our fire pit, raging bonfires are required. #vanlife  (at Ohiopyle State Park)

My first whitewater rafting experience was here in Ohiopyle, Spring of 2007, and the Youghegheny River was raging (at a Class 5 where Class 6 means you definitely will die or get seriously worked). It began a love of all things kayaking/rafting that isn’t always easy to partake of these days with two little ones. The Yough (pronounced Yock) is considerably more passive today. #whitewater (at Ohiopyle Falls)

Pennsylvania has the most amazing forests (sylvan is in the name after all). Black oak, white oak, northern reds! Maples abundant. And top left, sassafras, top right (my favorite these days) yellow poplar. They look like owls or demons I can’t decide. @audubonsociety #treeidentification (at Ohiopyle, Pennsylvania)

From the top of Brandywine Falls, Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Lots of bicycle paths, the leaves are beginning to change, and reportedly beavers and great blue herons (though we haven’t had the good fortune to catch any wildlife).
