Camping - Afton State Park

We went camping this past weekend with some friends of ours. It was so much fun. We've really discovered that we enjoy camping. This was our second trip with summer! :-)

This particular campsite was a hike-in. It was rough, as there was quite the hill to traverse before getting to our site. With all our gear (yes, we did try to pack light), it was quite strenuous, and we were pretty pooped by the end.

So, what do you do after hard work like that?
Reward ourselves with a fire!

What's done there, Sallie?

The next morning, we all went for a walk around the park. Afton State Park certainly is beautiful. The clear, blue skies and perfect temps probably helped a lot, too.

We came across this little log shelter. Not sure what it's purpose is exactly, but we thought it would was a great photo opp.

Next to that little shelter, there was this cool brick wall.
Another photo opp?
Yes, indeed!
The Dodsons...and Sallie (of course)
At the end of our little morning hike, there was a beautiful look-out.

Here's what we saw. Gorgeous!
I love this pic of Sallie! She looks like she's about to chase after something.
