This Week, Outside #3: The Iceman Climbeth

Most of Pennsylvania saw the return of winter weather this week, and you all didn’t spend any time wasting it. Like this guy scaling the ice cliffs above the Kinzua Dam.


And these kiddos in Mansfield, PA who turned a frozen ditch into an ice rink.

Elsewhere in PA, the ice and snow left us with some pretty breathtaking landscapes in the Pennsylvania woods.

And on the shores of Lake Erie.

At Presque Isle State Park


And this ice wall on Interstate 81 was about as epic as it gets.

And if we could choose any place in the world to ring in the new year, it’d be this A-frame cabin on Lake Mokoma.


As long as we could hang with these gals. Happy New Year, PA.

At Sycamore Valley Farm, Reading, Pennsylvania.
