#OptOutside 2016

Another Black Friday means another day I get to OptOutside with my nephew!  We went on a hike last year and I think both of us are more into biking right now so I ended up taking him to a park where we could ride our bikes and enjoy the cool morning.  There were even a few snow flurries – but they didn’t last long.  (Hopefully we will get to use our snowshoes this year!)

#optoutside

I’m sure you have heard about the #optoutside movement that REI started this year – instead of spending your day inside, fighting crowds during Black Friday, REI urged people to spend their day outside enjoying nature instead.  Here in PA I couldn’t have asked for a better day – it was actually in the 60’s with zero chance of rain – who WOULDN’T want to be outside on a day like that??  PERFECT hiking weather!!

I asked my sister if I could take my nephew on a hike and my Mom decided to join me as well!  We decided to check out some trails that we haven’t done in a long time – the first was on Pumping Station Rd.  We parked and walked about a mile round trip along the road, but could never find where the trail went into the woods – it was strange!  We did see a crazy looking boulder that looked like a giant whale which was hard to get a picture of because of the brush in front of it.  It seemed like everything had private property signs posted so we went back to the car to try to find some other nearby trails.
