An Outdoor Adventure

On Saturday, Eric, our friend Steve, and I set off on an adventurous climb to the Pinnacle, Berks Counties highest point of elevation, located on Blue Mountain. It was the perfect day for it being it was completely overcast and even chilly during some parts of the hike. If you are ever in the Lehigh/Berks area, I highly suggest checking it out, however be aware that it is home to gross creatures such as copperheads and rattlesnakes!(EEEEK!) Steve does this hike fairly often and warned us ahead of time that he normally sees at least one snake during his trip. I then warned him that I might faint. I have always been 100% completely terrified of those demonic creatures, but when we did come across that one, I was super proud of myself for only letting out one small, girlish shriek and kept the shaking to a minimum. I did not cry, this time.

The only camera I brought was the one in my iphone, so I apologize for the poor photo quality, it definitely did not do the amazing views justice!

With all the different trails we went on, it turned out to be about a 10 mile hike, and boy, do I feel it today! It was good fun, and I'd love to do it again! :)

What did you do this weekend??
