Ohiopyle State Park, PA

My husband had a long weekend off so we decided we wanted to go somewhere fun....but affordable.  Money is a little tight right now, so we stayed local.  I'm actually really glad we did!

Ohiopyle is so beautiful!  There are waterfalls, rapids, and lots of trails for bike riding or walking.  People were even in bathing suits swimming at the bottom of the waterfall.




 The weather was perfect!  Not too hot and there was a nice breeze.  Being out there made me just wish I could stay forever.  It's so beautiful.  Check out this view from the walking bridge!!


Of course we had to stop for a little snack too! She was a little trooper!  She walked with us on the trail so good (obviously we held her near the waterfall and the rocks).  She was so happy just to be able to run free.

My hubby and I are trying to make plans to white water rafting later this summer...It's kind of expensive so FINGERS CROSSED!!

  2. Ohiopyle is one of my favorite places. It's a bit of a hike for us now, but I grew up in Washington County and we would go there pretty frequently. I don't know if I'd really feel comfortable swimming in Cucumber Falls, but I'm a bit of a kill joy with my personal safety rules! I hope those ladies made it out alright!

  5. Oh my! What a view! That kind of scenery makes me want to find a soft spot to sit and read a book with the sound of the water in the background. It looks so peaceful there. Oh, and your daughter is super adorable!!
