Saturday we ditched Chancho's coworkers wedding to head out for camping early. I felt bad, but camping is so much more fun than sitting at a table making small talk. TG met us at the church and followed us to the campground. Once we found the sign that pointed us in the direction of the campground we started our journey of picture taking.
We had to cross over some train tracks.
Then we found a bridge to cross over. Going from NY to PA
It was a beautiful view of the Delaware River.
This sign says "Swim at your own risk. Strong current and water is 12 ft deep under the bridge."
The man said we would have to drive through a creek. He wasn't kidding.
Our campsite was perfect for us. We were able to fit the 3 tents and have room for 4 more. It was up on a hill overlooking the rest of the campground. It was like we were in our own world. TG, Chancho and I were in one tent. Chancho's sister and her boyfriend were in another. Chancho's sister's best friend was in one with her boyfriend. It was very nice to have the tent to ourselves after everyone left. ;)
Hanging up a hammock.
Monday we went for a hike. It was just Chancho's sister and her boyfriend with us. The rest left Sunday afternoon after tubing. The man at the office suggested this hike. Said the 20 minute drive was worth it. He was right. The views were spectacular.
On the way back down the mountain we stumbled upon this little snake.
Then as we were driving back to the campground a hawk flew right in front of us and landed on the tree on the side of the road.
As far as wild animal sightings, we saw fish, an eel, a skunk that ran sacked our garbage, a cat, a family of deer, a black bear, a snake, a hawk, and a bunny. Not too bad for a weekend in the woods. Before we got to the turn off to the campground we were speeding along the back roads when a deer jumped across the road. Chancho had to slam on his brakes to not hit it. One of the camping chairs came flying up from the back and smashed my arm. I have a good sized bruise, but I was happy that was all that happened.
Now I'm ready for a long shower and some packing. We got our mortgage approved and we have a tentative closing date set for next week. This is really happening now. I'm glad we got that mini vacation in while we had the time and money.
