As expected, I didn’t get around to posting yesterday. In fact, we didn’t finish our drive from Harrisburg to Cincinnati until 10pm! Yesterday was all-around uneventful, LONG, and I’m still exhausted from it (not that I did any driving or anything – oh no, Connor stepped up and handled the entire 8 hours… Hey, I offered :P)
Fortunately, we were able to spend this past weekend in Harrisburg and enjoy everything one last time – it was really very nice 🙂 Friday was very low-key – dinner and beverages at Midtown Tavern, and we chatted up a couple of well-traveled guys about our upcoming trip 🙂
Saturday we lolly-gagged around the house until a little hit after noon and then set out for a very leisurely walk around downtown Harrisburg. We were blown away by how beautiful and in-bloom everything was!
We took our sweet time and probably covered about 4 miles. It was just a blissful afternoon 🙂
On Sunday morning I woke up feeling surprisingly refreshed! And it was another gorgeous day, so Connor very easily convinced me to go to Colonel Denning State Park to hike the Flat Rock Trail. I was a little nervous because it was a 5 mile trail marked “difficult” and noted for it’s particularly rocky and rugged ascent…
I’m actually quite proud of us because before we knew it, we were at the top!
It was a great hike – just about perfect for Connor and me. We both were fulling capable of powering up and down the trail, but we were quite happy and ready to see the end of the trail come 🙂
Afterwards we drove home and decided to spend another afternoon enjoying the outdoors.
After enjoying some more urban foliage around Harrisburg, we got some dinner…
– Did you get outside this weekend?
– Do you prefer to drive or be driven?
