So far, this summer has already been filled with plenty of camping opportunities that I thought I’d share with y’all. Our first trip was my first backpacking trip. It was surprisingly a good time, despite the excessive mud and near breakdown.
June, June, June… how did you get here so quickly? Just yesterday I was eagerly awaiting May and now, after the rainiest May I think I’ve ever experienced, here you are! I hope you bring lots of sunshine and good times.
What I love most about you, June, are your evenings. You somehow know how to make sundown dreamy and nighttime romantic. No wonder so many want June weddings! I have so many fond memories of summer nights… and with you starting up again, I can’t help but pine over those memories…
late night walks on the beach, rainy dances in driveways…
In the midst of all of the Christmas hullabaloo I almost forgot that it isn’t actually Winter yet! I think I may have to celebrate the change of seasons on different dates from now on… how can I think of Fall when it has been snowing for almost two weeks now? Or when I’ve been wearing my big, down, ankle length coat for a week? Or when Christmas is 5 days away? Exactly.
But, in honor of one last day before Winter Solstice, I present to you, a few of my favorite things about Fall 2010:
|that would be me (the godmomma), the real momma, and the big brother, T!|
|yes, I really did forget to take a picture of it once it was finished… twice.|
|That’s all of us! We sure are cute no?|
What were your favorite parts of Fall? Can you believe its already over???
I wanted to give you all a quick look into our biking trip we took this weekend! We went camping a little ways out of the city and spent all day Saturday biking from camp to a nearby town and back. Beware – lots of pictures!
Our first stop was right as the trail was beginning on a high level bridge over the Yough River. We really had only been on our bikes for about a minute, but we had to stop to take some pics.
So we went over the river and through the woods… and then over the river again to the quaint town of Ohiopyle, PA. We had to stop in to fill up my tires with air, but we didn’t really enjoy the town until our way home.
Then we started on the official trail… 11 miles with nothing but woods and a river.
We didn’t stop too much on the way to town because we were itching to get some lunch, so we’ll skip straight ahead until lunch! The town of Confluence is right on the trail (well, we had to cross back over the river again) and it has a few cute little restaurants. We looked at the map and picked one…
If you think the outside is adorable, then you’ll love the inside! J and I decided that if we ever are lucky enough to have a second home in a trail town on a river, we would want it decorated the very same way. It was full of old photographs, dried flowers and vintage accents… check out the old books on the table and the vintage bathing suit hanging in the bathroom. Loved it!
After that we headed to an antique store right down the street and sadly I wasn’t able to buy anything (the chances of it making back to camp was slim to none!), but I’ll show you some of my faves…
Then we started our trip back… a little more leisurely this time. Here were a few of my favorite spots:
|a popular fishing spot|
|the coolest, most relaxing rock ever.|
|most beautiful part of the trail – look at those leaves!|
At the end of our trip (I’m not going to lie, it was a little miserable for me… I tried hard not to complain but my rear was hurting!) we made a quick stop in Ohiopyle to run into the store and visit the falls.
Then after a lonnnng trek uphill, we settled back into camp, made some dinner, had some s’mores and enjoyed the weather and the roaring campfire!
Overall, it was a beautiful fall weekend! I hope you all enjoyed the pictures (and I didn’t bore you too much with them)! On that note, have a good last official day of summer… can’t wait for tomorrow!
|I really hope we get to bike over this bridge!|
