Last Saturday, Patrick and I headed to Lake Maria State Park in Monticello. It ended up being one of the nicer days of the summer for hiking. The weather had cooled off from 90 and humid, so it was quite comfortable to hike around the park. We went to our site first and set up our tent. Then we spent a couple hours hiking around before coming back to camp just to relax. Patrick took a nap and I read Time magazine's feature on the Olympics. It was really nice to get away and relax.
Patrick made us a very nice fire. And we enjoyed it until the mosquitos kicked us out.
They have quite a few camping cabins at this park. We talked about doing a winter trip to one of these.
Our wonderful dinner of Rice, Beans & Chicken that Patrick made for us.
And the view from our tent before the thunderstorms rolled in. For the record I enjoy camping, but sleeping outside in a thunderstorm is not that enjoyable or restful.
