We just got back from a great summer vacation to Philly and Baltimore (plus a day at the beach).  A great time was had by all.  If you are interested, click here to see some of the pictures.

Camping Trip 2008

Roasting marshmallows around the fire

Roasting marshmallows around the fire

This past weekend, our family joined two other families in a campout at Hocking Hills State Park.  Although the weather was hot through the day, we avoided the raindrops.  Highlights include:

  1. Cooking in a borrowed cast iron dutch oven turned out great – we used it for four meals with the best being a pork tenderloin mixed with veggies. 
  2. Hiking at 3 of the 6 areas in the park (Old Man’s Cave, Rock House, and Conkle’s Hollow)
  3. Swimming in the campground pool
All in all, it was a great time and I think we’re going to have to go back to this location again next summer.  Here are a few pictures I’ve posted to Flickr of the event.
