The Season Has Begun!

25 May

Well, we finally did it.  We had our first camping trip of the season this past weekend.  Much later than usual.  Last year we were camping the 1st week of April.  Of course this was also the time my husband determined just how long I can take being locked in the camper with him and the kids while it continued to rain outside.  Apparently it’s two and a half days before I snap.

Anyway, it has been an unusually cold and wet spring, so camping had been put on hold, until now.   Our favorite place to go is Brown County State Park.  Most Hoosiers visit Brown County during the fall, the colors are spectacular.  But we really love Brown County year round.  Last spring we even bought property down there with hopes to have a house built there by the time we retire.

John and I used to tent camp until a couple of years ago when we spent the entire Memorial Day weekend in our screen room in the driving rain.  Looking back on it, we probably should have just given up and gone home, but we just stuck it out.

Here are a few pictures from last weekend…….

There is a hiking path around one of the lakes in the park and there are several spots that steps like this have been put in.

This doe was right by our campsite.

Mosquitos….go away!

Now it’s officially camping season!

Tomorrow we will discuss the proper technique for roasting a marshmallow!
