Two weekends ago Jamie and I went camping with a bunch of friends. We headed up to the Taconic State Park area of Copake Falls, NY. This was the first time I went camping, Jamie has gone before a few times. We had a lot of fun on the trip. I enjoyed hanging around with no cell phone or emails to answer, it was nice to stay out of touch for a whole weekend.
We had to buy everything for this trip. A tent, sleeping bags, etc, etc. Our tent is the red one on the left in the second picture. Its a pretty good sized tent for two people, we had plenty of room to keep everything and more. We got everything discounted because my sister works at Dick’s Sporting Goods, man what a deal!
We all took a hike through the Bash Bish Falls trail which was really cool. Once you go down the large hill to the waterfall area you encounter the trail that takes you across the border into Massachusetts. We went pretty far down the trail but there was still more to go. Almost all the pictures below are of the trail. I couldn’t help myself, just love taking nature pictures.
