Hello Beth, this looks like a pretty spot for camping.. I would think it is hard to find a campground that is not crowded.. I like the trees and lake, very pretty scene and photos.. Have a happy day!

Beth, looks like a lovely spot, but I remember many camping days that were spent in the rain. Not the best way to spend a weekend, for sure. At least you had a beautiful spot.
Well you couldn't have found a better site!! Beautiful images of the park ... one day I'd love to camp there too!

Banff is a wonderful place to visit. The world class scenery extends north and is all very attractive. I like the two individuals in that first shot. A very good post.

It's amazing how many wonderful places I've seen since I started blogging! This park is one place I'm sorry I missed.

I've seen photos of Banff. Thank you for sharing it!
Beautiful site in a perfect park. Bill always spends time looking for the perfect campsite. Sometimes I remind him that were not actually buying the place.

Reminds me of the Colorado Rockies. Hope I can make it to Banff and Lake Louise some day!

Point Lookout State Park, Maryland & area lighthouses

Where we stayed: Point Lookout State Park, Maryland

Fort Lincoln, located within Point Lookout State Park. The only original part that is still at the location is the white barrier wall, all buildings are new, I guess the weather and winds are rough on fort. 

Here is a vlog from that day of the sunset view from the state park & a coastline view from Fort Lincoln. I can so see why the fort was so in needs of repair, the winds there are so violent.

I will say that Maryland has pretty tough lighthouses to get to up close, usually you can get better shots, instead of through fences and all that jazz, but at least you can sort of see them? RIGHT??! Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Enjoy these views. Plan a trip soon, such a gorgeous area of Maryland. Beth  ( :

Grayson Highlands State Park & VA Creep Trail, Virginia

I was going to do 2 separate posts for this camping trip but it was only very quick weekend trip back in July of this year. Enjoy the vlogs from that day. We had a ball, such a great trip!!
1st part was our hike on Wilburn Ridge. 2nd day was our bike trip on the VA Creeper Trail. I think one of the most uncomfortable parts of the trip is riding in a huge van with people you have not a clue who they are... you just know that you are going to all be riding the trail. They van you up the mtn & you bike back to Damascus, VA. It is a 17 mile bike trip. Very easy. Not too much work at all.
One of our favorite state parks to camp at in VA is "Grayson Highlands State Park". We love this area 'cause you have the opportunity to bike the "Virginia Creeper Trail". Yes, we did make another hike adventure to "Wilburn Ridge". If you click each those names it will take you to our previous trip back in 2015. We took this trip in July of this year. What we love ab…
