Minimalist Camping at Sky Meadows - September 2016
We had great weather for our weekend of minimalist camping. After a night-time backpack to our campsite, we settled in for an activity-packed adventure. Saturday included a hike along the park's trails and a short segment of the Appalachian Trail. After lunch, we checked out an encampment of civil war re-enactors occupying the park for the weekend. Accepting a challenge from the contemporary members of the 21st Georgia Infantry (Confederate States) we play a lively game of 1860s baseball, with the rebels unfortunately winning the skirmish. Nightime brought a campfire and astronomy program. After our short hike out on Sunday morning, we headed home to Herndon. Check out this gallery for photos from the weekend.
