Camping in the Catskills


Growing up, the only family vacations we took were to hockey tournaments in the winter or camping in the Boundary Waters in the summer.  When Justin & I got married, I wanted to continue taking camping trips with my husband, but life happened.  Almost 6 years later, we finally used the tent and sleeping bags we received for our wedding.

We went north to the Catskills for the weekend and set up camp.  Tannersville and Hunter are awesome little mountain towns.  Once we got our campsite set up, we settled in for a quiet evening of veggie hot dogs, campfire Sangria and s'mores.  







Saturday morning, we enjoyed a few bonfire breakfast burritos and then made our way to the Zipline Adventure tour.  If you missed my recap of my Zipline experience, you can read it here.  We celebrated afterwards with a stroll through Tannersville.  There was a margarita involved followed up a face plant into a stream because I'm smooth.






The Catskills are incredible.  We explored such a tiny area and we are working on getting back up north in the fall when the trees are colorful.  We want to hike more and possibly even zip line again.  We will definitely get up there in the winter for a ski day.



Just thinking about the quiet, beautiful mountain air makes me feel a little more relaxed on this Monday morning.
