Hickory Run State Park hosts a variety of outdoor activities, but when we heard “Boulder Field,” we could not resist a trip. This 15,990 acre park, located in the western foothills of the Pocono Mountains, boasts a National Natural Landmark unlike any we had seen before.
Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve is an ecological bucket list item. You can visit any time of year and find new and interesting plants taking their turn on the granite. Our family really enjoyed visiting and exploring the preserve with its refreshingly different ambience.
Connecting with friends and family on a road trip can lead you to amazing destinations. Tallulah Gorge was one such adventure guided by my long lost best friend from elementary school.
We made a plan to see the first sunrise in the country at Acadia National Park, the easternmost part of the east coast, on Black Friday. Our family pledged to spend this day outside enjoying nature to its fullest extent instead of engaging in the riotous act of shopping.
