This weekend my husband and I went camping to celebrate our one year anniversary! We went back to Crab Tree Falls Camp ground and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! We cooked every meal over the fire, slept in a two man hiking tent, may have gotten rained out, and over the weekend I hiked a cumulative of 15 miles. Being a runner, that doesn’t sound like a lot, but this Crab Tree Falls hike is steep. And I proceeded to run most of the way down (if it was safe to do so). It was an extremely hazy weekend, so the view was magnificent and breathtaking.
After I returned from the hike Saturday morning, Tyler had spent the morning fishing and smoking his awesome cigar. We were on the way back up to the falls to check out the view from the bottom when thunder hit, and we raced back to our campsite to put all of our stuff away so it wouldn’t be ruined by the rain!
Tyler proceeded to build the most awesome thing over our fire in order to try protect it from the rain, and it worked great for about an hour, but the rain was just tooo hard and even the coals at the bottom were out by the time the rain stopped. And our tent that we borrowed just couldn’t handle that amount of rain, so our bedding was wet! So we decided to head home to sleep in the dry soft bed and ended up sleeping straight for TWELVE HOURS. I guess we were more tired than we thought!
The next day we hiked for over 10 miles in First Landing State Park, which was amazing. The trails that we took were right next to the bay, so occasionally we’d come out to a clearing of the ocean. It was so refreshing, and I’m so sore I can hardly move! It was a great weekend and totally worth all the pain I feel today <3
