For several weeks I’ve been slowly tracing my way through the trails found within the confines of Lackawanna State Park and I’m just about halfway through my goal of hiking every trail. The park boasts over 18-miles of hiking and 15-miles of multi-use trials (hiking, horseback riding, biking) giving me plenty of places to explore. Counting […]

Hiking the Dunmore Pine Barrens

Yesterday fellow UAV pilot Jonathan Edwards and I hiked to the “top of the world” at the Dunmore Pine Barrens to get some exercise, see the sights, and fly a little. I decided to hike this area because of local hiker, writer and blogger Jeff Mitchell’s blog post wherein he details the hike. He provides […]
