Sky Meadows State Park

Today we took a great schlep hike through the trails of Sky Meadows State Park. It's hard to believe that this gorgeous park is only an hour from DC. The views were perfect, and while it was sunny, it wasn't too hot.

The Boys and Danielle were troopers as we made them tackle hill after hill. Shira and I did go off on our own to tackle some of the trickier (read: exhausting) trails. We even hiked a bit on the Appalachian Trail, which made us feel all tough and what not.

We had a great time, and I've warned Shira that I'm thinking I may try to turn our next day hike into an a little overnight backpacking adventure.

  1. I've been meaning to visit that park for a while. When I was taking an astronomy class a few months ago, and sharing astronomy facts back and forth with my son (his interest in the astronomy stuff he learned at school last year was actually what motivated me to take the class!), his guitar teacher told us that Sky Meadows State Park was a great place to go for looking at the stars. He said something about a group that meets there for that purpose. One of these days, I plan to look into that.

    Glad you guys had fun in the daytime!
