It's been a while since I've done a picture journal, huh?
Well, here you go! I was too busy relaxing, so I didn't really take too many photos.
Simon invited me to go camping with him on Wednesday, and I said yeah, let's go!
We met up around 10:30 AM and made our way towards Bear Mountain!
It was a beautiful day, and the whole forest just smelled really good. In fact,
something smelled so good that I walked around without really paying attention.
Suddenly, Simon grabbed my bag and pulled me back! He then pointed at the snake I
almost stepped on. Sorry, lil dude!
We hiked out a couple of miles, which wasn't a whole lot of fun because of the awful
heat, but I got to see all sorts of cool stuff on the trail.
The site Simon chose was real pretty.
That pile of rocks is the remnants of our fire.
Our tent! I really like how the sun's rays are all speckled.

View at the top of the hill! I think that's the Hudson in the distance.
Another shot of our tent.
We spent Wednesday and most of Thursday out in the forest, and roasted marshmallows
and hot dogs.
It was really nice, sleeping out in the woods. In the morning, the cold fresh air
felt really good.
One of my favorite parts, though...
I woke up around 8AM on Thursday to the sound of all these beautiful birds, so I just
sat back and enjoyed it.
And then in the distance, there's just this really satanic scream,
Like amidst all these beautiful sounding songs, this ugly ass bird caw.
I'm like, what the hell IS that?
