Santa Rosa Lake State Park

10/16-10/19~Our favorite places to camp are state parks and COE’s and if the two are combined it’s even better. πŸ™‚

We were here for 3 days and except for some extreme winds (but not the worst we’ve endured) it was a beautiful stay.

The road into the park was really long and went by a dam, Lake Santa Rosa was low but still beautiful.

We rode our bikes several times, it was easy to go 5 miles on well paved roads with no cars.

On the second day I was treated to a beautiful sunrise and a visitor…

On our last full day we took in the 3 mile round trip hike along the shoreline.

We passed other hikers who didn’t seem to be working as hard as us. We later learned if we had started at the opposite end of the trail it would have been mostly downhill.

We enjoyed the hike, although at the 439ft gain Paul said that would be like climbing stairs in a 44 story building! Good grief, no wonder we we’re tired!

We didn’t make the 3 miles, although if we had turned around and gone back, it would have been almost all down hill. lol

It was perfect weather for a hike. Later I made smash potatoes and sausage on the blackstone and we sat in the sun and read.

It just doesn’t get any better than this… or maybe it does.

Below is a picture of my planning app, we are actually at number 29 and in 5 days will be at number 35.

Leave your guess of where we are headed in the comments! πŸ™‚
