Default Pennsylvania Grand Canyon

I'll bet most of you didn't know that there is a Grand Canyon in Pennsylvania. When we found out it existed we just knew we would have to fly it. The canyon is about 45nm long and we happened to hit it on Saturday during peak foliage and I had my video camera rolling. Three ship extended trail with Claw and Clogs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9rzECL26AI

Great video. What river are you flying over? Hey Vlad, how about a similar video over the Hudson River, say around Newburgh or Poughkeepsie? That is a very beautiful area.

Default Grand Canyon

Flew up that way yesterday. The leaves are at their peak. One of the nicest rail to trail pathways extends the full length of the Grand Canyon (Pine Creek) and is quite popular with local bicyclers.
