Just keep moving...
Heading south from Massachusetts usually means having to go through New York City which is not one of Garrett nor my favorite drives so we opted to go through the Pocono Mountains. After being close to a city, we were all longing for another hike and we thought we would find it in the Poconos. It was becoming increasingly difficult find open campgrounds but Timothy Lake South was open and had space.
The area in which we stayed reminded us a lot of the Great Smoky Mountains with dark, winding roads. We were only there for three nights and only able to do one hike. It was an easy boardwalk hike with two beautiful waterfalls: Silver Thread Falls and Dingman Falls. One hike was better than nothing and these falls didn’t disappoint. The hike wasn’t as spectacular as in Acadia but it was pleasant, nonetheless.
DC is another place where we know we need to return. This trip, we only made two of the Smithsonian Museums and the National Archives. That isn’t even a drop in the bucket of all the things there are to do and see here. God willing, we will be back, again and again.
