Hiking at Limekiln

We hiked the "Old Damn" trail at Limekiln State Park.
I think the trail is a 1.5 mile loop. Yes, we remembered to sign out.
The creek was very dry. That's what happens when we have a summer with no rain.
The three Piel kids.
Can you spot the nest high in the tree?
Saw two fawns at the trail head.
I love hiking in the woods.

Tenting at Limekiln State Park

This past weekend I went tenting with the Piel family.
We had site 117.  We were not on the water but very secluded from other sites.
Camping is a lot of work. Most of the work happens at home, packing and figuring out everything you need to bring and then all the clean-up and drying out after the trip is over.
We spent hours and hours sitting and staring at the fire pit.

Toast for breakfast along with my tea water on the boil.
No dishwasher while camping.

Our group as we set out for a hike.
Thankfully, no rain for me this weekend!!!

Basketball Shrine

I bought the orange mini carnations on March 1st from the grocery store. The photo was taken on March 3rd. The vase still sits on the counter. Although, the flowers are faded now. The wine  is was Oswegatchie Orange. The wine was used to celebrate the team making it to the Sweet 16.
The display actually turned into an SU Basketball Shrine. : )
Following the team is a wonderful winter pastime I'm sorry to see our season end.
