ricketts glen

Here it is folks.
Our last camp trip of the season.
We've been planning this trip for the past few months
with our friends Meg & Brian.
 
one word to sum up our weekend:
 
We have been trying to book Ricketts Glen State Park
for a while now.. but its always booked up.
 
Luckily we got a weekend in the prime
leaf changing season..Or so we thought.
 
beautiful drive throught the tiny mountain towns
 
 
After we drove 3+ hours to get to our destination..
we checked in & were told, we booked the wrong weekend.
no joke! thankfully, they had an open spot on friday night.
so, we set up camp:




tent with a lake view!
 

this man is such a hunk in his flannel.
 
be still my heart..

we set out to explore on an afternoon hike.
 


this was the most perfect time to come here...FALL <3
 


love this lady.

 oh, and we rescued a baby salamander!
 
 saturday, october 18th:
 
today was our long hike day:
along the Falls Trail-
"Take the Falls Trail and explore the Glens, which boasts a series of wild,
free-flowing waterfalls, each cascading through rock-strewn clefts in this ancient hillside.
The 94-foot Ganoga Falls is the highest of 22 named waterfalls.
Old growth timber and diverse wildlife add to the scenic area.
Ricketts Glen State Park is one of the most scenic areas in Pennsylvania."
 

 







my beaner boots saved my feet on this muddy hike.
 



it's raining leaves..
 
 
 
 
                                          autumn day pack came in handy!
 
 
 

turn of events:
we had to be out by 3 if we couldn't find another site.
fortunately someone canceled & we semi-packed up
and moved across the campground.
 
adam sat on the truck bed & held the ten the whole way. haha.
 
our new spot!
 

our fire saved us. it was cold with off & on showers.
brr.. it dropped down to freezing overnight.
 
sunday, october 19th:
 

it even snowed/sleeted as we were packing up.
 
 
the lake was choppy as we were heading out.
 
despite the crazy roadblocks,
this time away was so much fun.
we are lucky to have friends who love the outdoors like we do.
 
hope you are enjoying the changing of the leaves & the seasons, too!
