A Camping We Will Go (Pedernales Falls)

May 1, 2012

Pedernales Falls State Park marks the beginning of our state park tour across Texas and our summer camping adventures. At right around an hour outside of Austin, it was a perfect choice to satisfy our craving for the great outdoors. The park is situated amidst winding roads dotted with wildflowers, live stock, and rolling hills….such a beautiful backdrop for biking, swimming, and passing beer around the campfire. The best part was locking the phones in the car and not thinking for a second about what time it was.  It seriously doesn’t get any better than this!

(Cue the photo montage!)

One of my favorite things about camping (besides locking all my tech in the car) is the cooking! There’s something really satisfying about using small cookware over an open flame under the big blue sky (it might sound like I’m writing a corny country song, but it’s true) (I should also add that, parenthetically, Mike has the whole cooking thing covered most of the time). We didn’t do anything too fancy–heck, the staples in our camp food basket include Kool-Aid mix and Jiffy Pop. This time around we threw in some Field Roast Franks and Cheddar Bunnies to round out our eggs, bread, and fruit. What are your camp food must haves?

    Favorite camp food:
    Camp potatoes. Cook up some chopped bacon, and then cook thinly sliced potatoes, yellow onions, a little butter, salt and pepper. Best ever.
