Instagrammer Called Out By Own Sister For Set-Up Hiking Photo
Casey Sosnowski, a freshman at Florida Atlantic University, decided to share a photo of herself enjoying a 'hike' in a local park, looking the part in her active wear and a visor, a water bottle in her hand.
The only thing is, the scenic woodland spot where Casey claimed to be wasn't quite where she was... As it turns out she was just out in the back yard.

"My sister said she was going hiking... this is our backyard," her sister Carly tweeted, sharing a shot of their younger sister papping Casey in a wooded area at the bottom of their garden. Y'know, for the 'gram.
Casey's original post had a location tag for 'Lake Okahumpka Park and Trail' in Sumter County, Florida, while the caption also apparently read: "Nature is the ultimate healer to all our problems #naturelovers."
But Carly, a sophomore at Florida International University, saw first-hand that that wasn't quite the case. And because sisters are there to wind each other up, rather than quietly giggling about it to herself, Carly decided to share the revelation with the world of social media, where her post quickly racked up more than 275,000 likes and 40,000 retweets.
The trolling also continued in the comments section, where Carly joked: "Good thing you brought your water bottle to stay hydrated."
Thankfully, though, Casey seems to have taken her sister's trolling in her stride, having since updated the caption to: "Did I go hiking? No. Is this my backyard?...... Maybe."
She also added a winking emoji at the end to show that she saw the funny side.
Some people noticed that Casey was wearing a different coloured top in Carly's photo to the one she was pictured in on Instagram, but others said that her white crop top could be seen hanging around her younger sister's neck while the photoshoot was underway.
Many social media users, however, simply found the whole thing hilarious, and applauded Casey's ingenuity.
"Queen, we stan," one person commented.
Someone else said: "Girl i do the same thing‼️ We're in this together."
Casey's original post is also now doing nicely with more than 2,300 likes, so it looks like she might just have the last laugh.
