Happy Fall

This weekend the family & I took a break from it all and headed to the mountains in Central, PA, to a little slice of heaven nestled somewhere in Rothrock State Park . . . a place we call Diamond Valley.   It’s not on a map and there is no cellphone or internet.  

And as much as we love this little get-a-way, it has also become known as the Dogs’ vacation.   It’s a place where our dogs can run, and run. . . and run . . . and swim, and roll, . . . and run .    

There is also no itinerary.  There are just  long walks in the woods,  canoeing around the pond, or searching for critters such as frogs, salamanders, and snakes (that parts not for me … although I am always nearby with my camera to document the find).. and I have heard there’s the occasional bear :-0   When the day is done and the body’s exhausted from all that fresh air and exercise, we all pull up a camp chair and keep warm by the bonfire, make smores, and look for shooting stars.  

It’s not glamorous and it’s quite frankly a lot of work and quite exhausting…but it is that weekend that, for this family, comes only once a year and we would not  trade for anything.

Truly a perfect first Fall weekend…
