5 Things I Like To Do While Camping

  1. Sleeping outside. We like to tent camp and there is nothing like waking up in the morning to the feel and smell of the morning air.
  2. Campfire. Where else can you have a campfire first thing in the morning as well as at night? Roasting marshmallows, making s’mores, even macaroni and cheese.
  3. Walking through the campground admiring other sites. I love seeing other styles of tents and I really love looking at campers. My parents had a Coleman Camper when I was kid. So seeing campers brings back lots of childhood memories.
  4. Quiet time. Camping is the one activity where I can, we all can, be quiet. We don’t need our phones, internet, or Skype. We can actually have conversations and that be enough.
  5. Hiking. Typically, I am not much of a hiker. My husband loves to hike. When he was single a vacation for him was packing a backpack and spending days hiking portions of the Appalachian Trail. Me? Well, I am more of a day hiker, where the trail is paved and clearly marked. I do enjoy sleeping in a tent. When we do go camping, I look forward to hiking through the local state park especially if it has waterfalls. I love waterfalls.
