Over the Weekend: Mt. Davis

Chris and I dragged ourselves out of bed woke up at the crack of dawn yesterday to drive out to Mt. Davis and meet-up with an outdoors group for a hike. We've been members of this group since last November, but to be honest, this was the first time we were actually able to go on an outing, and I'm so glad we did. Mt. Davis is the highest point in Pennsylvania at 3,213ft., and a hike in mid-October was the perfect time to see it, the trees were gorgeous and the drive out there was absolutely beautiful, And the weather! It was supposed to rain but the conditions ended up being perfect (and made me glad I dressed in layers, by the time we were at the top, I had shed my fleece and windbreaker and was starting to regret not wearing a tank top). The loop we did ended up being around eight miles and was a mixture of rocky paths, fire trails, and a short stint on a back road. It was great to meet a few new people (one even from New Hampshire!), get outside, get exhausted, and see a bit more of the state we now call home.

Did you have a nice weekend?
