    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    It's been many years since I got to visit the PA GC! Thanks for posting the video. I enjoyed that.

    I camped at the same spot north just north of BW picnic area, the sunset on the on the canyon was beautiful. It looks like you all had a great time I’m sorry I had to drop out. My wife and I had a great trip to Ricketts Glen the week prior with the same great weather.
    Peace

    I need to add a big Thanks to Ramblin Rev and SweetbabyD for the bratwurst Wednesday night, Pro Vagabond for bringing in 5 gallons of water that we used Wed and Fri night, and Lazy River and Cranky Bear for hauling in more water Fri night.

    These extras made this trip that much more enjoyable!

    Yes it was a nice time, wish we were able to hike the entire time (and not just the last day) but it is what it is!

    Oh yea before I forget, Deucalion I hope you are feeling better, but, what happened to the drink you promised at the end of the hike?????????

    I owe ya one, or two! We'll have to catch up on another hang. You brought the water this time, I'll bring the flavored stuff next time!

    BTW - I am doing a little better. Follow up appt. with the Dr. tomorrow morning. Hoping for good news on the progress. Time will tell.
