As a child I went on numerous camping trips with my family. Not to mention the weeks spent in a teepee on a Native American Reservation in north Wisconsin. I believe that these trips have opened my eyes to the benefits that being in nature can have on the unexposed. If your time spent away from the fast-paced life that some crave is overdue, I suggest making your way to a town that is literally off the map – at least Verizon Wireless’s map – and go to Lost River, West Virginia.
The Mighty Youghiogheny at Ohiopyle The scene as we drove to Uniontown, Pennsylvania, on Friday was almost too perfect to be true. The mountains, the clear blue sky, and the open road was the perfect beginning to what I was anticipating to be an adrenaline-pumping trip down the Youghiogheny. I was on my way to go whitewater rafting for the first time.
