Being a Sagittarius I love an adventure! As girly as I am I still love being outside with the Mother Nature.
The sun is coming out to play more since it’s May (it’s cliche but how did we get here so fast?!) and I love to feel it on my face and skin.
Matt & I were both in the mood for an adventure a few weekends ago but I had work on Friday and he had to work on Sunday.
We formed a plan!
I let him do the leg work as I was exhausted from what life had been throwing at me all week. He came to me with the Idea of Raven Rock, I knew nothing about it just that it was outdoors, sounded cool, and was only about an hour 1/2 drive.
I packed the new cutest back pack I had with essentials like water, Lara Bars, Aleve, bandaids, Gatorade, and a mandala blanket. I like to make sure every base is covered because ya never know, right? Matt laughs at me.
Matt had done a little research but I had no idea what to expect. The day was gorgeous and a ton of people had the same idea as us. In the camp ground you could smell hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill which had me salivating at one point. We pulled out a blueberry muffin Lara Bar and started the 5 mile trek to the rock.
The trails are clearly marked with color coded reflectors depending on which trail you happen to be following. I was impressed and at ease with this (I’m terrified of being lost in the woods!).
For the steeper sections huge wooden planks were added for more traction along with support going up or coming down.
There were two Boy Scout groups we passed with the big packs carrying walking sticks and munching on granola bars.
Matt & I sat by the stream listening to the sound of the water flowing as the other adventurist followed the winding trail.
The day was perfect and the top of the rock made it so memorable! The trees had gigantic root systems that even formed out of the ground and the cliffs that were ages old that hung over us while we sat around like lizards on the warm rocks.
It was so much fun my phone mainly stayed in the backpack but I did manage to get a few photos.
