With Pittsburgh and New York as destinations from Indiana, I made a suggested stop in Yellow Springs, Ohio. While the recommendation was based on the great cycling here, I loved this little "hippie town" through-and-through. With just four days to play, I did indeed pedal the Little Miami Bike Trail, but also enjoyed cruising about town and hiking Clifton Gorge. Yes, yet another surprise find along the way!
Next up, Sewickley, a suburb of Pittsburgh, where I visited my "Maryland family" after nearly three years! It was a 12th year reunion and a birthday celebration that lasted four days, from a BBQ to Pedal PGH, to enjoying the now, teens to eating local Greek food and massive pie! It was a great way to start a new year!
Is one birthday celebration enough? I guess not! I arrived in Brockport to good food & cake & song with a friend (from high school!) and her family. It was a week of long chats, game playing, Moscow Mules, Rochester touring, riding the Erie Canal, and toe-dipping in Lake Ontario.
I'd say the photos speak louder than words! In the morning, I return to the woods in Eastern Pennsylvania for a week of a little work and a bit of detoxification before my annual visit to Easton, Maryland.

Miss you already J. Too quiet here. And untidy. Loved our MoscNOW Mule and Vino Verde birthday celebration. Looking forward to blog updates and book reviews. Of course today I found Golden Boy. Will hold for next year. Travel safe <3

Bo: You must read "The Dovekeepers" at your next break. Really wonderful! Devoured "Away" but wanted different ending! Thanks again for the wonderful week! J.

Love the Yellow Springs hippie enclave. Brought back memories of a little piece of Northampton, MA. Nice to see the biking duo back at it again. Was anticipating a bit of "drunk-texting" from Brockport. Fun birthday celebration with good friends and lots of pie!
