We were pleasantly surprised to be able to get such a great site - since we had the only spot open we figured it would be a dud - turned out to be the best site we've had there yet. The kids loved the big open space and Harper really enjoyed shoveling up the gravel into his dump truck - rinse and repeat.
Adam had so much fun riding his bike around the campground and there were a ton of other kids around that he found himself racing round and round the loop. He clocked in quite a bit of bike time for sure.
We also did a lot of hiking around the campground. The views are spectacular and the lack of cell service is truly a welcomed inconvenience.
On Memorial Day we decided to head over to the Shenandoah National Park for a longer hike. We used one of Andy's company perks of fitness spending and purchased an annual pass to the National Park Service - we've already gotten a ton of use out of it - but more on that later. The hike we took was pretty challenging but Adam did great and Harper - well, he had a lift so he was fine and even fell asleep! Our efforts were rewarded with a stellar view and then a downhill second half! Ice cream from a roadside stand was our second reward. :)
It was an awesome weekend and the truck proved to be a great purchase - Andy said he didn't even feel like he was towing the camper!
We can't wait to go back to this beautiful campground for our apple picking tradition this fall!
