Hello, Hello…. how was your weekend?
Mine was fabulous!!!!!!!!!!
We (actually I) decided it would be a great weekend to go camping. Our son was scheduled to work both jobs and my husband and I decided why stay home…..so we went camping.When my husband arrived home from work Friday afternoon, I was packed and ready to go.
We arrived just before sunset and had almost everything up and ready by the time darkness set in.
We went to bed quite early since my husband was suffering from jet lag after traveling this week and we had both put in a full day of work. Plus, the plans for Saturday were to visit my favorite WI park and do some hiking. Our goal was the complete the loop of both bluffs at Devil’s Lake State Park….which is approx 6.5 miles.
We woke Saturday morning after a night thunder, lightening and big rain, that thankfully, our tent held up to perfectly. On the menu for breakfast was pancakes, fruit, and coffee.
Then we headed to the park a few miles away. Since we had been here many, many times before we knew exactly where we were headed. My only hope is that I could manage the entire loop, which would be my longest hike since my surgery.

and at the top of another bluff
here are sights we saw in between the two bluffs
We shared lunch in the middle of the two bluffs over looking the lake.
And completed the entire loop in a little more than four hours. Success!!!
After hiking we headed back for some relaxation at camp before playing a game of disc golf together on the campground property.
Then prepared dinner….chicken alfredo with broccoli.
After that is was a few games of cards, some time by the campfire and bedtime after a long and very successful day.
We had a wonderful time hiking at Devil’s Lake State Park and camping at a near by campground that has quickly become our favorite in that area. It ended up being a great place to unplug, relax, and unwind from a long busy week.
I arrived home and was happy to see my son planning to prepare dinner for Mother’s Day. How nice is that…….
