If you're ever around Bucks County, PA check out Tyler State Park. They have an amazing Disc Golf course sprinkled through old growth forests. I think we saw about 10 different kinds of birds flying around over the course of the day. It is super well-maintained and a great way to spend a Sunday.

If you're a Raptor enthusiast and you're into tracking Hawks, this is the place to be. If you're just looking for a great hike and you happen upon the wonders of the mountain - Hawks, snakes, foliage, and other wildlife, consider yourself #blessed #yass.
Hawk Mountain was a nice day hike located along the Appalachian Trail near Hamburg, PA. Bring snacks and watch the Hawks swoop all day.

Brewery: New Belgium Brewing Co. Beer: Imperial IPA| Beer Advocate Score: In Review 86 Abv: 11.0%
I checked out Tyler Park's disc golf or "frolf" (frisbee+golf) course last weekend, on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Technical holes in the hollows, open field holes with blooming trees and flowers, and straight and narrow shots along ledges. I have recently, dramatically, dubbed it my 'calling' and perhaps it'll be a new summertime favorite. Around about the 9th hole we stopped for a beer break in front of the dam. This is a creamy, imperial, boozy IPA that is a summertime favorite. Pair this with a disc and a basket and your weekend is set!

Chinese researchers have been busy inventing some of the coolest stuff you couldn't even imagine. Graphene aerogel weighs just 0.16 milligrams — or, if you’re having a problem conceptualizing that, a cubic meter weighs just 160 grams (5.6 ounces) (from here). This material is light, spongey, and has the potential to do a world of good. Imagine a huge oil spill occurs in the middle of the ocean. Now we may have just the material to drop, absorb, and lastly, reclaim the natural resource/pollutant. Scientists are still developing the material more and thinking of uses.

I'm originally from a tiny town called Tunkhannock, but I drove up from Philadelphia where I've lived for nearly a decade, and explored the trails. It's about 2.5 hours one way and I made it into a little day trip. The trail now has a new, lovely parking area complete with bathrooms! Heck yeah!
Next time I'll tack on a hike at World's End State Park to make the day more challenging. Ricketts Glen is a rather easy hike, but totally worth the trip for the sights alone. Head out during a warmer season and bring your bathing suit! Lake Jean at the top of the hill is a great little spot where you can rent boats and cabins.
