While it hasn’t been the typical Summer we would expect temp wise, I was still lucky enough to get out and enjoy the great outdoors this Summer season (at least once) with my baby for a very special weekend getaway to Camp Kittatiny located in the Poconos. The following were taken during that weekend getaway.
There’s just something so peaceful and magical about the river & trees that surround this water carved valley.This was pretty impressive to capture considering I don’t like heights. Speaking of water carved check out the shot below. 😉I’ll tell ya one thing, if you have trouble sleeping try listening to the sounds of running water to put you in that dreamland state. Worked wonders for us not to mention aided in that call of nature to release the “hounds” LoL.The sunlight came through the trees and gave a great shadow to the scenery.The waters were a bit calmer down at this end of the creek.
Once we arrived at our campsite the next thing to do was set up our camp fire with the fire wood we purchased from the Kittatiny camp grounds store. The grill was also sold to us there for about 15 dollars. My mind went to happy thoughts of warmth by the fire and roasting marshmallows & smores.
Dinner was flame grilled burgers. There was something so organic about cooking over an open flame out in nature. Reminding us that the comforts of today in a way blind us from how amazing it is to connect with nature. The flavor of these burgers when they were done was incredible! On our second day at Kittatiny after showering and cooking breakfast
Now while it would have been nice to take a canoe tour, we didn’t feel the weather warranted it as it was a bit chilly and over cast. We decided on snapping some shots of those who did choose to canoe instead.
Besides canoeing there’s other activities such as Zip lines and Paintball you can participate in for a hefty fee.
Here’s video of what it looked like live as people ziplined through the air on two parallel lines. We retreated to our campsite for lunch. For lunch we grilled some fish…
The fish was cooked perfectly. It was flaky and moist and just absorbed the seasoning and olive oil releasing such a great flavor and smell. I could eat this particular fish everyday. By dinner time steaks were on the menu
Uh Yessuh! shout out to Patrons of the Pit!!
On our last day there we had grilled burgers again. I also want to give a big shout out to Bill and his family who we met on our second day at Kittatiny. His campsite being directly across from ours. Bill came over introduced himself and offered us a stack of burgers he and his family weren’t going to use as they were leaving early. Thanks again for the awesome burgers Bill.
Those are some tasty burgers! Mmmm!!! Mmmm!!!.
Almost got it but alas it got away.
