Hi Friends. Happy Monday? Hate that my weekend is over, but I have lots of excitement on the horizon, so I suppose, as always, life will go on.
What were you up to this weekend in your neck of the woods? Saturday here was fine & dandy. Warm-ish, 50's and sunny. Then I wake up Sunday morning...SNOW. IN APRIL. WTF? No thanks.
Of course, being the brilliant souls that we are, the BF & I had made plans to go adventuring on Sunday. We had decided (per my Springtime bucket list (is it "springtime" if there is snow on the ground?)) to go hiking somewhere new. We headed about 2 hours southeast of Pittsburgh to Mt. Davis, the tallest peak in PA.
When we arrived & parked the wind was whipping snow into little snow tornados all around us, we couldn't find the trail head & we were walking in about a foot of snow. Literally. So, we wandered around for a few minutes, hopped back in the car & headed further down road. We found the fire tower we had hoped to hike to, climbed it, experienced the ridiculous wind, but now 50 feet in the air...
I snapped a picture or two before we headed down.
We found ourselves a short mile long trail & traipsed through the woods before one of us got hungry. And hint hint, for once it was NOT me. Back to the car for some sandwiches before we forged on.
We found ourselves a nice overlook of nearby High Point Lake.
Before having to turn back around...and yes, we did hop out of the car in hopes that we had acquired super strength & could move the tree. No such luck.
We picked a new to us route home & stopped in the little town of Confluence, at the confluence of the Youghiogheny River (said Yock-A-Gane-E) & enjoyed some rails to trails hiking before calling it a day.
While it was still cold, it turned out to be a bright sunny day.
What were you up to this weekend?
Was it cold in your neck of the woods?
Any totally unpronounceable towns, rivers or other landmarks where you live?
Like seriously. Youghiogheny?
