Hawk Falls

Saturday, Tim, Rachel, and I went exploring in an area of our beautiful state that we've never really spent time in - the Poconos.  Its about 2 hours from our home and we've only passed through that area one time coming home from Vermont.

Rachel had a rare Saturday off from work, so we hopped in the car and headed out.  We'd already looked online for things to do, and thought that Hawk Falls, in the Jim Thorpe area, sounded like something we all could do.

The trail was about a mile long, a bit rocky in places but easy, I'd say.  I was more concerned about the return trip because it would be mostly uphill, but Tim found me a nice walking stick and it was just fine!

When we got the the falls, I was so glad I said, "yes," to this trip!

One of the things that was so amazing is that this is not far from the turnpike - in fact a huge bridge was visible from the falls and we could hear vehicles the whole time we were there!

It was such a beautiful day!

After the hike we drove around exploring a bit more, and then looked online for a restaurant.  What did we do before smart phones? 

One that interested us all was Roadies!  It said scenic views and they were right!
It was a bit windy, and there were a few pesty bees, but we enjoyed our lunch and the view!

We then explored a reservoir and park, and went to an antique mall in Weissport.  Tomorrow, I'll show you what I found there!

The days are fleeting and we are thankful for this day with our girl, and the time spent building memories together.
