Fall Colors PAA couple of years ago my husband and I took a fall road trip. One of the stops was The PA Grand Canyon, which offers breathtaking views. It’s a part of the Tioga State Forest and is located near Wellsboro. During our road trip, we found an overlook tower. It was set back in a wooded area. You had to put money through a machine to get in. It was definitely unique to say the least… But, totally worth it. The view was picturesque, especially with the fall foliage setting the canvas. We definitely recommend it if you’re planning a fall trip to see the leaves change. But if you don’t want to wait till fall, the PA Wilds is also a great place for summer camping. It’s a great trip for nature lovers and photography buffs.

Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area

A couple years ago my husband and I visited Stroudsburg, PA. It’s located in Monroe County, in the Poconos region. We toured the town Waterfallsand found some great eateries. We also visited a couple local tourist spots, such as the Delaware Water Gap (located about 5 miles away).

The area is popular among fisherman, paddlers, and hikers. In fact,  the Appalachian trail runs through 27 miles of it. The water gap is 1000 feet deep (when viewing from above). However there are 70,000 acres of outdoors adventure. You can see natural beauties everywhere, from wildlife to waterfalls.

If you’re looking to visit this state park, you can stay near by or camp right there. In fact, they offer riverside camping. Visit the Delaware Water Gap website to learn more.

Hyner View State Park

Traveling is one of my favorite things. My birthday is near the end of September. I often use it as an excuse to go somewhere. A couple years ago I decided I wanted to go on a road-trip. I checked out the website Visit PA. They had several road-trip itineraries. I found one for the PA Wilds, the perfect trip for autumn.

The itinerary included several locations such as Wellsboro, Coudersport, and Lock Haven. So, we made a weekend out of it. One of our stops was this beautiful overlook at Hyner View State Park. You can see the stone wall off to the side (built in the 1930s). Just beyond that is a gorgeous view of the Susquehanna river.

This location is a favorite among hang gliders. We also recommend it for nature lovers and photography buffs.
