One Last Hurrah

This post marks the end of our first scamping season. It’s hard to believe that we’ve been the proud owners of our bouncing, baby Scamp for six months already! We spent more time camping this year than we have in any other in any other season, but still, all good things must come to an end. Before the snow flies, we had one final outing and then put her in storage for the long, Minnesota winter.

The sun was shining when we arrived at Sibley State Park:

The prairie section of the park was alive with Eastern Bluebirds, they were everywhere you looked! This was the only one that was still long enough for a photo:

We were so happy to be outside, especially Danny. He doesn’t look like he minds riding shotgun, what do you think?

Danny has had a recent injury so hiking is not allowed, that’s not keeping him off the trail though!

There are a lot of things to love about camping in the off-season. Not only are there no bugs, but the trees are absolutely dramatic without their leaves:tree

And you have the campground to yourself:campground

It was a perfect trip, so peaceful:sibley state park

But all good things must come to an end. Farewell, Geraldine, it has been a great season. I can’t wait to see you again when the snow melts.
