  • I absolutely love the Allegheny National Forest. We stopped at the Kinzua Visitor Center but it was closed due to Covid. Amazing photographs from this area overlooking the river and forests. Enough...  more »
  • Allegheny National Forest has been a precious memory as far back as I can remember. My Aunt Hester had a cabin in Pocono Mountains. I was about 4 or 5 then and the only thing I can remember is playing in a little stream that trickled down a hill on one side of my aunt's cabin. Her cabin was on top of this hill and my Dad sat on a blanket with our family and friends . They had kids close to our age and we played in the creek as the adults would oversee our activities. During our visits we always had fun together. My Aunt and her boys kept the cabin until the day she passed away. By that time I was in my 20's and starting my own family. It wasn't too far beyond that , the Allegheny National Forest came into conversation again. My husband and I bought play toys ...a snowmobile and motercycles/ off the road bikes. Our Daughters were in the double digits in age and didn't want anything to do with dirt bikes, but fell in love with snowmobiles.....and Allegheny National Forest. We rented cabins and it was a great getaway during the winter. Pennsylvania is beautiful and if you never visited you are missing a very picturesque state. Back in the 70's the trail rides for snowmobiles were plentiful, but the interest for snowmobile riding was few. We were actually in the mix of a few people who started a Snowmobile Club to create more interest. I worked for a short length of time for a company that sold recreational play toys and gear in the area I lived . We didn't live near the Forest, but the Forest was perfect, safe place to stay out of trouble. The four seasons were so beautiful in the mountains. It was great to be outdoors. Getting back to nature is what I'm all about. I am in my 70's now and with Harry. We have been together for 21 years and he is the same way. We enjoy being outside and have the best stories about the beautiful , magical experiences we have seen and felt while Nature surrounded us. We all need a variety of experiences to add to our memories and I suggest trying road trips, bycycle riding, hiking , horse back riding and so much more. Our National Parks are the place to go and are safe for our families. Magical Memories are the most eye opening, soul cleansing, heart warming experiences one can ever have. It can happen in an instant, or any time increment, but one must keep. their eyes, mind , and time open with a calm pace. Walk in faith, not by sight.
