Baxter State Park

I've been trying to find the words to describe our recent camping trip to Baxter State Park.

In short: AMAZING.

We canoed, hiked, stargazed, ooh'd and ahh'd a lot, ate toasted marshmallows, read, knit, laughed, joked, slept in a tent, sat around a campfire, heard moose, saw quail, didn't see moose or bear, made new friends, and then canoed and hiked some more. It was SUCH fun! It was your typical camping experience, really, but everything was just right and magical in a simple way. We cannot wait to go back for more next year.

The air was crisp, the sun was warm, the water was crystal clear, the trees were huge, the quiet was wonderful. The best part? No cell phone service!

Glad you had a great trip, its nice when everything comes together like that. If you want to see a bear come on up, Moose saw one last week when he took the dogs running on our road.
