Fall Festivities | Camping

I grew up going camping with my family and I would love to make that a tradition with Buddy and I, so we decided to go camping last week! Of course, we happened to pick a night that dropped into the low 30’s, but despite the cold, it was still so much fun!

We gathered all of our supplies and food (including Polyface hot dogs…because what would a camping trip be without great hot dogs?!) and we headed out! One of the benefits of living where we do is that we are so close to tons of great camping areas! Honestly, we could have just camped in our backyard, but we decided to go somewhere new, so we headed to Skyline Drive on the Shenandoah Parkway (which is GORGEOUS this time of year!).

Here are some pictures from our first, of hopefully many, camping trips…

I’ll be sad to see these beautiful leaves go away!

What have you done to enjoy the fall? What are some of your favorite “Fall Festivities”?

Happy Monday!

    There you go with the great fall pics again, not fair. My favorite festival is 1890’s day in McIntosh, it gets a little more commercialized every year but some of the old standbys are still there.

  2. Our local agricultural fair is Labour Day weekend – for me it’s always been kind of a farewell to summer and a hello to fall, especially since school starts back the day after the fari. There’s also a local Harvest Feast held at the end of September which I always look forward to – everything is locally produced, even the cranberries for the cranberry sauce. Where you went camping looks absolutely amazing, great fall colours. Don’t envy you the chilly temperatures though!

    I absolutely love camping, but we have children that do not like camping when the weather is less then perfect. (Too hot, too cold, too wet…) So we tend to plan camping for summer only or rent a cabin. I would love to camp in the fall! Looks like you had a great time!

  4. You guys look so cute! Our usual camping site looks nothing like that – it’s more of a sand parking lot. 🙁 I’d actually want to go camping if it looked like your spot! My fall entertainment is usually going to a cider mill. This year the apples didn’t come in so well, so everything is a lot more expensive (a gallon of cider is $11 – eeks!). The kids love to see the animals, though!
