Canadian Adventure! (Aventure Canadienne!)

The Pinnacle and the Pulpit

Otherwise known as the two lookout spots on top of Blue Mountain, our latest hiking effort, located about 90 minutes from Philly. Not only was this the longest hike we’ve been able to do so far, it was also one of the most scenic and exciting. On our way from the base up to the […]
