Stay-cation Destination Close To Binghamton
The school year is almost over. Are you trying to think of someplace different but close to take the kids too? Someplace fun but educational….I don’t mean the boring educational either. Here’s a suggestion:
It’s Boulder Field at Hickory Run State Park in Pa, It’s about an hour and a half from Binghamton. This is where really big boulders hang out at. Some rocks as big as 25 feet high. It’s what’s left from the last ice age.
It’s many, many football fields long and wide. It’s boulders as far as you can see. You can walk on the rocks from one edge to another. Everyone in the Pitcher family started their walk. Devon and Riley went across the field and back in no time.
Tara started across and she wanted to play Hide n Seek with me. I apparently wasn’t moving fast enough for her. I was taking pictures of the rocks and kids.
So what does my 9 year old say to me? Hey Old Man, Man up and start walking the rocks! It sounds like a command for the field and for life. I made it all the way across but decided to take the easy way back through the woods. That also sounds like a life lesson as well.
Masquaw and Pops asked me if it is a trip to take on a motorcycle. The road you take from Hickory Run to Boulder Fields is a couple of miles long. It’s unpaved but you could easily take a motorcycle ride on it.
The speed limit is 25 mph, to give you an idea. It is a beautiful part of the country. When your done with Boulder Fields, there are other sights to see including Hawk Falls.
A special thanks to Kenny Mulligan from NorthPointe for the heads up. Make sure you take proper footwear for your walk and enjoy a walk back into the Ice Age.
