Day trip: Cook Forest State Park

Posting 2 days in a row?! Who am I?!


Any who, Eric and I both had the day off yesterday so we decided to go to our favorite place on earth! Cook Forest State Park!


We left home around 9am and got to the park around 10:30. A lot of people that go to the park like to canoe/kayak down the Clarion river, but Eric and I prefer to go on tubes and just float down slowly!


We found a good spot to get in and I dropped him off with our tubes and water and then I drove about 1 1/2 miles down stream and parked our truck. Once I got the truck parked I ran the 1 1/2 miles back to Eric and the tubes so that we could start our ride!

I actually ran it pretty fast, I was super motivated to reach him and enjoy my favorite outdoor activity!

Once we were in the water all our worries drifted away and we just enjoyed all the beauty of God's creation.

It took us about an hour and 15 minutes to reach our stop. We got out of the water and as Eric went to climb up a couple rocks to get to the road and we heard a growl! A GROWL! So I was following him but I backed up and looked at the rocks and a raccoon was in between rocks hissing and growling!! YIKES. Needless to say I did not go up the same path as my husband!

Once we were out and away from the nutty raccoon we got dried off and changed and went to our favorite little bar/restaurant for a late lunch.

They have a pet Emu!

Once we got home I did a few chores then went to a friends house for a fire, it was the perfect weather to be out around the fire and we stayed up way too late talking.

All in all it was a fun day to get out and have have an adventure!
