For the start of day two in the Poconos we decided to enjoy a yummy breakfast at a Poconos icon – Piggy’s. Located in Lake Harmony, it serves all day breakfast. It is an incredibly busy place and by the time we left there were quite a lot of people waiting.
We were hoping to check out Lake Harmony but from what we could tell, there was no area that wasn’t privately owned. Instead we headed to Hickory Run State Park. It is a very large state park (over 15,000 acres) so we didn’t get to see it all.
Our first stop was a walk along a short trail to Hickory Run Lake. It seemed like it may be a popular place to go fishing as there was a family there giving it a go when we arrived and others heading there when were leaving.
Next was the most popular part of the park – Boulder Field. Boulder Field is 67,000 square metres of boulders on top of boulders. The huge weight of the boulders has pressed down the soil so that the top layer of the boulders is virtually at ground level.
Boulder field was created during the most recent glacial period around 20,000 years ago.
