Florida woman called out by her own sister after she posts fake nature 'hiking' picture while posing in her backyard
Casey Sosnowski didn't mean any harm while posing for the perfect shot moments before her hike at Lake Okahumpka Park and Trail in Florida.
A woman recently learned a valuable life lesson: Not to lie on social media when your sister is nearby.
Casey Sosnowski didn't mean any harm while posing for the perfect shot moments before her hike at Lake Okahumpka Park and Trail in Florida. She realized it was the perfect spot for an Instagram snap, with lush trees and a well-trodden, inviting trail, Fox News reports.
There was only one problem. It was a fake.
Dressed in athleisure wear with her arms out wide, holding a water bottle in one, Casey posed for the photograph in her own backyard.
“Nature is the ultimate healer to all our problems,” she captioned the picture, along with a hashtag reading “#naturelovers.”
Like many of us are guilty of doing, she posted the image online and tagged the athletic shot with the supposed trail location.
And voila! the post received several likes and comments from those thrilled by the adventurous snap in moments: Mission accomplished!
But as vicious as siblings can get, Casey's sister Carly just wouldn't let her get away with the lie.
Bent upon destroying her sister's internet stardom, Carly subsequently tweeted a screenshot of Casey's Instagram post and juxtaposed it with a behind-the-scenes shot of her posing for the photo -- in their own backyard, not on some exotic hiking trail. Busted!
“My sister said she was going hiking.....this is our backyard,” Carly captioned the images, thereby exposing her sibling's scheme.

The scathing tweet subsequently went viral and garnered over 300K likes and over 40K retweets as of Thursday afternoon, sparking a wave of creative commentary.
Many pointed out the massive size of the backyard, saying it could easily be construed as a hiking spot.
In response, Casey hilariously said she felt "personally attacked" by her sister. She then updated her Instagram post to coyly admit that the setting was, in fact, her own backyard.
“Did I go hiking? No. Is this my backyard?… Maybe,” she wrote, along with a playful winking-eye emoticon.
This is unquestionable proof that while one may be able to fool the 'gram, they can never fool their siblings.
