Hickory Run State Park Camping

“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

To me, camping in the fall is much more enjoyable than camping in the summer. You don’t have to deal with mosquitos, humidity, or high temperatures. The warmth of the fire is cozy and the cool weather makes for a good night’s sleep. Last weekend AJ and I drove up north to Hickory Run State Park for one last weekend getaway. The leaves had started to change up there which provided a beautiful scenery for hiking. We visited the infamous Boulder Field and a nearby lake. If you’re looking to go camping near Philadelphia, this spot is only 2 hours away.  Here are a few photos from our trip.

We stayed at site #310, but it was a little too close to the road. We could still hear cars driving by at night and during the day, so I’d recommend booking a site that’s situated further in. They also have sections for dog-friendly camping and RV camping.

  • These two bring me so much joy. I was thinking about how much Molly would have loved this hike. Miss my old girl.
  • “True belonging doesn’t require you to change who you are; it requires you to be who you are.

True belonging is the spiritual practice of believing in and belonging to yourself so deeply that you can share your most authentic self with the world and find sacredness in both being a part of something and standing alone in the wilderness.” @brenebrown

  • This year I signed on as a marketing columnist for my local newspaper The Mountain Ear!

My first column came out last week and talks about the beginning steps toward setting up a social media marketing plan for your small business. As a digital-driven millennial, it's fun to see my words in print. 😊
  • Decisions are not isolated events. They point us in the direction we're headed. While I feel like I've made a lot of progress this past year, there are things in my past that are holding me up. I'm making a commitment to let go of that hurt instead of trying to make it better. Saying goodbye was always the right decision. I just wish I'd realized that sooner.
