    Hey everyone, the girlfriend and I are going up to Cooks Forest for Valentines Weekend and will be spending a long weekend in a Cabin. Has anyone been up there? Good sights? Any must do's? Photo opportunities?

    If you have any photos to share that would be amazing.


    Updated with some photos.....

    The cabin was extremely nice and cozy, especially with the fireplace.

    We made the trip up to The Kinzua Sky Walk in the negative degree weather and it was definitely worth it!

    Most roads had "NO Winter Maintenance" signs and it was awesome for my Rubicon :)

    And we made the trip up to the Fire Tower but the sunset/weather was a dud, but luckily I had this.........Ninja Warrior to photograph hahaha

    Thanks,

    Looks like we might get some decent amount of snow which should be nice for some photos.

    If it snows enough you might get some rather good pictures of the cabins. Certainly look for the frozen sections along the river. Enjoy!

    I've never been, but please do keep us updated (preferably with pictures)!

    Because of my location and work, I've visited many parks in the central and eastern part of the state. I haven't ventured to Cook.

    I'll definitely be taking a bunch of photos, and the GF is just getting into photography too, so it should be a great trip! :)

    I believe they have ice skating, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, sledding slopes, forest cathedrals, and so on. So it should be a real nice weekend.

    Let me see if I have this right. You're going up to a cabin with just your girlfriend in the woods, away from civilization , i.e. Not a lot of people around, for Valentines weekend. A lovely romantic place with privacy, a fire place, no one around, glorious woods, serenity with no one there to bother you, the beauty of nature, without anyone else there and you are wanting to take pictures???

    What is this younger generation coming too???

    I can think of a MUST DO or two, but photography isn't one of them, and if it was to involve photography the pictures wouldn't be shareable.
