ATV trip to McHenry, MD

This year I went a bit crazy and financed a four wheeler. There isn’t too many places to go where I live, so when we got invited to Deep Creek Maryland, there was no passing up the chance! If I could use one word to describe the entire trip, it would be “Spoiled”! Our friend’s let us stay in a beautiful cabin they had reserved for the anniversary! We stopped at Swallow Falls State Park, which by the way was packed with people with either the Fall Foilage lovers and/or the national parks being shut down and closed. This park had a lot of damage from Storm Sandy, but was still breath taking. I have been four wheeling in some pretty places, but riding in the mountains here was just absolutely perfect. I’ve never had so much fun, let alone I had my camera strapped on my quad! Best trails, best views and a chance to capture it all! Great trip and will be going back in the future!

Warren Dunes State Park

I sometimes travel for work, and I’ll have to be honest I’m over Elkhart, IN. So this last trip, I decided to head up to Michigan and check out ” The Dunes” You can imagine how surprised I was, to find out that Weko Beach was a rock beach…… on sand dunes? Right? Totally confusing, but incredibly pretty. Rock beaches and I go back. From being a toddler to now, ” I pocket rocks”. I have many rock collections and just love them!

Ohio Maple Syrup

I’m always up for something new, so I love that my friend Charlotte invited me to help with her family’s maple syrup production. I had recently upgraded my camera, so I was even more excited to get outdoors. You can see they take their maple syrup pretty serious, and I love all of the different tools and equipment they have. Afterwards, we had fresh corn bread with fresh syrup and boy did that hit the spot!
