Warren County Winterfest 2008

   

We got to the Winterfest a little early. We took our grandson Maddox down the sled hill about 6 times or so. He loved it! Then we walked around a bit, had some food and drink and played on the ice a little. We were a little too cold and worn out to wait for the Polar Bear Dip, my favorite attraction.

If YOU have any photos of the Warren County Winterfest '08 that I can post, please send them to me, along with a report if you want!

Thanks! John

Also here are some photos from my friend Fran B and the Atwoods. Thanks everybody!

We often guide hikes for different colleges and environmental groups.

You will find info on our upcoming trips and you can read a trip report and view photos on recent trips on the "Upcoming and Recent Trips" page, AND The "Allegheny Outdoor Adventure Message Board" is back! Allegheny Outdoor Adventures Message Board. Please visit it and USE it!

We tend to hike the more remote, less visited attractions. "off the beaten path" if you will. Many of the "best spots" are well kept secrets. Our trips are often "weather sensitive" and we may change or make last minute plans.
