Come Along with Me............

As I take you with us camping :)

We love camping.  We love the wide open space, the fresh air and I love being disconnected from our electronics.  Getting out in nature is awesome.  Unless that slithery nature ends up slithering past my tent :(

For this trip, we decided to visit Koreshan State Historic Site.  They have been closed for some time due to construction.  We were excited to see that they had reopened.

The trails were awesome and followed the river which was beautiful.  The trails take you directly to the Historical Settlement.  The settlement has an interesting history that I found quite fascinating.

The original owners of the land that is now the state park.  This was their house.

First time in a canoe

Nathan kept rocking the boat when he was rowing and little Michael was holding on for dear life

We had a blast and learned a lot of history about Koreshan, the people who lived there and their self sustaining community.  If you want to read more about the history of the Koreshan Park, click here for a little bio.

The boys are asking when we can schedule our next camping trip :)
