The Dog Days of Spring

On my constant quest for dog friendly activities in the Poconos, I came across the Lehigh Valley Iron Pig’s “Dog Days” at the Coca-Cola Ballpark.  The weather forecast boasted the first weekend of temperatures over seventy degrees and I was craving all things outdoors.  So what better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than surrounded by sunshine, stadium food, and dogs?!

Camelback Mountain Resort - Beginner Skier Perspective
The first mountain I fell in love with in the Poconos was Camelback.  As a long time snowboarder, it is important for me to have a good mix of trail difficulties ranging from steep verticals on double black diamonds, to the easy, gradually-sloped green circle runs.  I am lucky enough to have all of their 30+ trails and 10+ lifts and carpets in my backyard, and often take advantage of the resort amenities.  But for this article I wanted to offer a new perspective--that of a beginner on the mountain--so I rented skis!

Josie Porter Farm, an Organic CSA

Perhaps one of the best ways to experience an area is through local food.  And for the Poconos it does not get more local than the Josie Porter Farm, an organic CSA (Community Shared Agriculture) and farm store nestled in the quaint village of Cherry Valley.  In addition to growing their own seasonal crops, the farmer’s market offers “healthy, whole foods from local and regional sources, a local food hub that offers honey, maple syrup, meat, cheese, eggs, salmon, and more.”

Delaware Water Gap - Hiking the Appalachian Trail
One of the most prominent views from the Appalachian Trail is the cascading Kittatinny Ridge that dramatically cuts in and overhangs the Delaware River, right in the Poconos’ very own Delaware Water Gap.  The gap itself spans nearly a mile thanks to the winding river that cuts through the mountains separating the New Jersey and Pennsylvania border.  The river actually contributes to the continual peak growth of the ridge, which is constantly shifting.
