On Sunday, P and I decided to take a day trip to enjoy the amazing weather. We originally thought of the beach, but picked the Poconos instead.
We went hiking at Bushkill Falls. Apparently locals — and real hikers — think it’s silly to pay to hike in the area, since there are so many other good spots. But for me, it’s worth it to have some stairs and a slightly more developed area. Let’s just say I wasn’t raised to be the bravest in the woods.
It was a gorgeous day. Took us a few hours to get there, but it was worth it. We spent the afternoon walking around, taking in some great scenery, and having some good conversation.
We ate lunch at the Gem and Keystone, where we’ve been before. It’s just a local pub, but they have amazing food and drinks. We both got mojitos, and I got fish and chips. (Yep, fish and chips. But, we hiked, and it was my only meal of the day. I’m also trying this thing where I worry less about food, choose what I want, and just try to stick to my calorie goals.)
All in all, such a fun day in the mountains!
