>An Adventure at Ricketts Glen

>Years ago, I went to Ricketts Glen State Park and within recent days I found out that a snowshoe / hiking trip there was being planned through my college. I was thinking about going on the trip, because I never tried to snowshoe before. The opportunity seemed to jump out at me, even though I’m not really one who likes Winter and snow. I just wanted to try something different because I haven’t in a while. The trip takes place this weekend, on Feb. 20, and would be a great photo opportunity. Ricketts Glen State Park has a lot of beautiful waterfalls, and I remember seeing some of them during my past visit there. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a camera with me at the time. The person in charge of putting together the event emailed me about a change in the trip’s location because of difficult conditions. Even though I would have liked to visit Ricketts Glen again, a new location altogether for the trip would mean a place I haven’t been to before. So that is an equally positive aspect in my opinion because I like getting to see places that are new to me. It turned out that I can’t make the trip this time around. However, it’s something to think about for a future excursion. I probably wouldn’t have thought of trying a snowshoe trip if it wasn’t for hearing about this activity through campus recreation. So I definitely give credit to my college, Cabrini, for the inspiration to try this outdoor adventure later on down the road. I have a new “bucket list” item…go on a snowshoe adventure!
