Ink's Lake State Park

It's a wonderful thing to introduce others to the many joys of camping. People often ask me, "What do you do when you're camping?" To which I say, "We hike, we explore, we play games, take pictures, we relax..." Somehow,  just explaining it is not enough. To know the beauty of camping you just have to go and experience it for yourself. That's why I was so happy when we finally booked a trip with our best friends. I knew that all I had to do was get them out there and nature would take over from there.

the beauty of the hill country never ceases to amaze and inspire. this is what keeps us coming back again and again.

the water was a little chilly as we climbed out of our kayak. the bottom of the lake was soft mud with lots of moss that somehow wrapped itself around our feet, holding us securely in place, making us feel like we were one with nature. a dip in the lake was naturally the best way to end a sun-soaked day of hiking.

as the sun rose on our last morning we reflected on the memories we had made, knowing that our best friends had now become lifelong camping buddies.
