Almost Wordless Wednesday

So where was I for 10 days? In the Adirondack Mountains!
Specifically I was camping at the 8th Lake (state) Campground.
Site 38, on 8th Lake, as I started to unpack

The campground is located between 7th and 8th Lakes.
This is sunset on 7th Lake.

The mornings can be foggy so often when I went to feed the ducks at 8th Lake this was my view.

Barely any of the lake was visible...but I loved how it disappeared in to the fog.

And other days, the view just continued forever!!

I almost forgot to take a pic of my setup....This was my second Friday here.
Nothing fancy compared to some of the other sites but homey enough for me.

Friday night brought some rain clouds.
Yeah, I ate a cold dinner in the car as the sandy ground tends to flood easy.
Luckily my new tent (thanks Santa!!) stayed dry!

Unfortunately, the storm on Saturday (while I was away) was too much for (Daddy's!) canopy to handle and this was what I came back to. There was no saving it so I got the maintenance guys to help me take it away.
It was actually kinda nice to have dinner and the campfire under the stars that evening.

Tomorrow will either be hiking/climbing or critters...I haven't decided just yet...

Looks like a gorgeous area, Sarah!
We leave for camping tomorrow, but only for three days--and there will be about 35 of us. Not everyone could come. : )
Your camping trip looks much more peaceful and restorative than mine will be!

Oh my gosh -- what a beautiful place! You couldn't ask for a more peaceful, serene setting! I love the picture of the dock ... where the water comes up over it?!! Sorry about your canopy. We lost one over the summer, too. They just don't handle high winds all that nicely, do they? We learned, during VBS, to take the 'lids' off every night before we left! Looking forward to today's post! :)
