Andrea Rodi began Saturday morning with her boyfriend enjoying a mini-vacation in Stoystown; it was the final day of their weekend getaway spent traversing the Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail.
“We rented a cute little cabin near the Route 30 entrance to the trail and brought our snowshoes and cross-country skis and all of that, just to get outside and get away,” she said of the popular trail located four hours from her Chester County home.
Despite the dense snow on the trail and the 20-degree temperature outside, Saturday was a rare winter sunny day in Western Pennsylvania, Rodi said, and they were pumped to enjoy it: “We were out the day before when it was gray and a lot colder. So, because of the sun, 22 degrees felt like 80 degrees.”
