It’s amazing what a difference a week makes. Saturday March 15th while a lot of people were attending the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Scranton attempting to get a view of Senator Hillary Clinton walking in the parade, I took the opportunity to make a few turns at Ski Big Bear at Masthope Mountain. It was a great day, while a little overcast, the snow was soft and easy to turn on, and the slopes were uncrowded. After two hours of nonstop runs (eleven in total), I enjoyed a leisurely lunch and great conversation with the owners of the ski area.
Then, fast forward to this weekend, daylight savings, and warmer weather and all of a sudden the golf courses are open. Saturday March 22nd with an afternoon high of 46 degrees I took the opportunity to hit two buckets of balls at Mountain Manor Golf Club and then on Easter Sunday, after a very lavish brunch at The Inn at Pocono Manor, I managed to get in 18 holes at Cherry Valley Golf Course. I can’t report a score as I needed to take way to many mulligans to make it around the course. All this got me thinking….what other kinds of outdoor activities are people participating in here in the Pocono Mountains during the spring? I would certainly like to hear what you like to do this time of year, and where you like to do it.
