The ball dropped late last night and we somehow made it through 2017. Before all of that took place, I went out in the frigid cold with a backpack full of camera gear and did some light hiking. With a fresh snow fallen, the trails were beautiful and the sights were snow covered.
As I try to do once a year during the Fall, I took a day off of work on Friday to get out into the woods with a backpack full of camera gear and a bike. There was an overlook that I haven’t been to yet outside of Ohiopyle State Park so I started my day off at that trailhead a bit before sunrise. 2.5 miles uphill later, I arrived at a beautiful scenic overlook, albeit a bit clouded over. Next I hopped on my bike for a 10 mile ride from the town of Confluence to the Pinkerton tunnel on the Great Allegheny Passage bike trail. Then I just wandered around Ohiopyle proper a bit. The last pictures are some detail shots of making fresh apple cider with the family.
With almost a foot of snow on the ground and the skies clearing up a bit, I headed out to Ohiopyle with a bag full of camera gear and a tripod. Nothing much to say about this, the beauty of it speaks for itself, much better in person obviously.
