OHIOPYLE STATE PARK - SUMMER 2001

(Updated 04/20/02)

This was my first trip to Ohiopyle State Park. Laurie was there once before with her father. It's a cool place to go. People were wading in the river. Although we did see some people go down. People don't realize that those rocks get slippery and the water is moving a lot faster than you realize. We saw a couple of people fall and get swept away becaue they couldn't regain their balance long enough to get back on their feet on the slippery rocks. Eventually they did. But you could see it was a struggle. We walked around, checked out the bike rentals (not this time...maybe in the fall), and walked on the nature trail. Then we tried to find the Cucumber Falls. I got confused, told Laurie to turn where we shouldn't have and we momentarily got lost as we were heading up a mountain. We turned around and then we found the falls. Pretty neat.
