What made it so fabulous is that this is a vacation where Baylee can come too!
While we were there, my family came to visit. (Hence my dad was with us watching the season finale of the Bachelorette on Monday night. Did you get to read that post?)
I must admit that no running took place until Friday and even then it was only 3 miles and it was a struggle between the heat and my tight calf that had returned. But really I have no right to complain about the tight calf because I did no stretching or cross training all week.
So here is a little bit of what we were up to at the lake!
One evening we did a dinner cruise on the Proud Mary paddle wheel boat. The food was amazing, and we especially enjoyed the cruise and seeing more of the resort area via waterway.

Remember how I hiked Bushkill Falls and Ricketts Glen earlier this summer and I said they were both dog friendly but I would never take Baylee there? Well, this park was also dog friendly and we DID take Baylee. If I would have known the terrain ahead of time I would not have brought her. It was challenging enough for just Scott and I let alone a 10 year old dog.
This is just a sampling of the rocky and steep terrain. This was the only route so we had to go this way. The people off to the left are just looking at the dried up falls. That was not an alternative route.
Apparently the main attraction of the hike is the Balanced Rock. I guess it's pretty cool. When we got back down to the parking lot you could see it sticking out among all the trees. It was amazing to see that we had hiked up that far.
