This past weekend we rented a camper and headed out to spend the evening at one of our favorite local parks. In high allergy season, B wanted to take the boys camping, but sleeping out in a tent would lead to lots of allergy issues for everybody. As a compromise, B rented a trailer. We headed out with a very simple plan, hike a bit, make hot dogs and s’mores, and play Go Fish. Monte Sano has a multitude of trails, and although we have hiked many of them, we haven’t yet hiked them all. We did a portion of the fire tower trail and blue trail to take a tour of the camp ground areas:
And we also cut through the Japanese Gardens:
This is definitely one of the gems of Monte Sano, we love this spot:
And the bamboo forrest:
I think one of the boys’ favorite things from the trip was all of the deer. We saw several, including a fawn (that I couldn’t capture a picture of), but I did get this one:
Although it’s still pretty hot here, the abundant tree cover on these trails keeps it much cooler:
We had a fun time and the boys are already talking about the next time we go!
