Backpacking in Afton State Park

Last weekend Patrick, Rickard, Melissa and I headed to Afton State Park for a little backpacking trip. I was the only newbie on the trip as everyone else had been there before. We headed out on Saturday morning around 10am and started our adventure. We hiked about seven miles around the park before we got to our campsite around 3pm. The hike to campsite is really less than a mile, but we took the scenic route.

Patrick made us sandwiches for lunch, so we stopped along the way to eat them.

After we set up camp, we hung out for awhile before we made dinner. We had chicken tacos with all the fixings, while Rickard & Melissa had burgers. Rickard was pretty into the food, so he even brought a whole pan of brownies to eat.

The next morning Rickard went to town on making his gourmet breakfast of pancakes, sausage & eggs. Patrick and I had Boathouse Farm smoothies and some nuts and fruit since it seemed pretty hot for oatmeal. After packing up our site we hiked another five miles before we headed home.
