In between my Ireland posts, I wanted to sneak in a quick trip I made at the beginning of July to beautiful Ohiopyle, in the Laurel Mountains of Pennsylvania. This is one of my most favorite spots to visit, and I’ve been going there ever since I was a kid. We would camp, ride bike trails, white water raft, explore the forest and swim in the Youghiogheny River. Summer never seemed to end! I don’t get back as much as I’d like, but I managed to this year. It was one of the hottest weekends of the year and the river was so cool and refreshing. We sunned ourselves on the huge, flat rocks that extend from the shore, sipped on some beers and dipped into the icy cold mountain river when we needed to. Time moved slowly for once. It was summer in all its glory.
The perfect summer day!
The sound of river falls is the absolute best.
