6yearanniversary

Happy 6 year anniversary to the blog that was only supposed to be a couple month challenge.  As a follower of this blog you know that my posts have been dwindling down the last couple of years.  I was going to announce with this post that Mistransformation was calling it a day.  I have changed my mind however and am probably just going to change things up a bit and instead of posting workout reviews, I’ll just post about my hikes and kayaking trips with pictures, etc.

Thank you to all of my faithful followers throughout the years. This type of blog is sort of just running its course and running out of steam.  Times have changed and I have as well.

So with that said, let’s see what the next year brings and I’ll revisit the thought on anniversary 7.

Many people enjoy climbing mountains, or peaks, whether it be for a specific elevation or the view at the top.  This is common in New York and New England, and to a lesser degree, the southern Appalachians.

Pennsylvania is an odd state for “peakbagging”, because it doesn’t have many peaks.  Most of the terrain in this state is defined by ridges and plateaus with fairly consistent elevations.

Regardless, the views in Pennsylvania are still impressive, and the climbs can be very challenging.

This list is based upon mountains with features at or near the summit, such as a view, firetower, or rock outcroppings.

The focus is not on the high point itself.

There generally must be a vertical climb of at least 500 feet that is feasible for a hiker to do from a lower elevation.

Some climbs are off trail.

All climbs are on public…
