This weekend we decided to go on an impromptu camping trip to the Shenandoah mountains in Virginia. Despite being caught in traffic and arriving an hour later than we expected, not bringing enough wood to cook dinner, putting the tent up wrong in the dark, forgetting a pot to boil water for coffee in the morning, it was still an amazing trip.
Nothing could go wrong that would make these views any less spectacular (well, besides maybe having no coffee, but being the resourceful wilderness explorers we are, we found a camp store that sold some). The mountains behind mountains behind mountains created a backdrop to a fantastic weekend.
After our night of epic fails, we packed up early and set out to hike a 5km journey down to some gorgeous waterfalls.
And, we never expected to see this many stars only a few hours from DC. Who could be mad about eating a balanced dinner of s'mores ( our carbs), trail mix ( some protein), and wine (err...fruit?) when looking up at a sky like that.
All in all, our trip was saved by the beauty of the Shenandoah's.
