Saturday Snapshot: Camping in Adirondacks


Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Melinda at West Metro Mommy Reads.

Last week, I posted about our weekend traveling up to northern NY state for my college reunion, with a group of photos from the shores of Lake Ontario, at Selkirk Shores State Park. This week, the second part of that trip: we spent a few days camping at Higley Flow State Park, just on the northern edge of the Adirondacks, and - more importantly for our trip - just 30 minutes from Potsdam, NY, home of Clarkson University and my sorority reunion.

We had some bad weather and on and off rain while at Higley Flow, but I have a few photos, including one from our last visit there a few years ago. It's a beautiful state park:

Gorgeous wooded campsites among tall trees

Blue sky! The rain cleared out!

Packed up and ready to go.

Hope you are enjoying a lovely weekend!

    1. We almost always bring our camper on our vacations - makes vacationing much more affordable but we also love our little home away from home!
