Pretty Views in You Don’t Have To Hike To Near Ohiopyle

Scenic views and waterfalls in Western PA are plenty, but if you want to get away from the city, many of these destinations require some hiking or even trailblazing to find. And sometimes, you’re just feeling lazy but need some inspiration for your Instagram account. Or your grandma is in town and you want to show her all the cool places you’ve been.

Only Hike 10 Into My #52HikeChallenge

It’s 19 weeks well into 2017 and I’ve walked only 10 hikes dialing in about 28 miles. I decided to enter this challenge last year and was also slow in 2016, ending at I think around 43 hikes.

A little behind but we’ll catch up this summer. 🌱 {2017 Total: 26.7} A post...

Unfortunately I am still on the slow track of one post a month, if that… Weekly post goals didn’t even make it into January. I’ve set small goals for myself to achieve through out the year, though. Get better at photography. Hike more. Get in shape. Meet...

Unplugged. A Soliloquy.

I find it almost amusing that this is my topic of choice as I type this on my iPhone when I should be sleeping. We have no wifi access in the house so why not use my data plan? My life revolves around digital as I manage that aspect of a marketing department, my attempt at a personal social brand, my dog’s Instagram… I take pictures with a DLSR camera that I am still learning to use. I find recipes for dinner on...
