Exploring the Fall Foliage in the Poconos

On November 4th a group of residents from The Watermark at Logan Square left city life behind to celebrate fall in the Poconos. Along the journey we marveled at the robust colors of the fall foliage and upon arriving in the charming town of Jim Thorpe we were anxious to take in more of nature’s glory at the observatory at Penn’s Peak. It was a perfect day to take in the mountain views and the fresh air of the Poconos.

For lunch we dined at the highly recommended Trattoria 903, a quaint Italian restaurant with incredibly delicious, authentic dishes. After an excellent lunch, the group headed to Daisy Field Farm in White Haven. There we embarked on a horse drawn carriage ride down the dirt roads of this beautiful farmland. Mick, the owners of Daisy Field Farm, gave an informative tour of his family farm while Clyde, his horse, led the way to a breathtaking overlook with an amazing view. In addition to the picturesque views of the mountains and the colorful foliage we also spotted some wild deer along the ride. Once Clyde and Mick concluded the ride we had the opportunity to meet some friends on the farm including goats, roosters, rabbits, more horses and a peacock.

It was a gorgeous day and we truly had an extraordinary time in the Poconos.
