A few weekends ago I went for the best little day trip. I was in the mood to get out and go on a little adventure, so my brother and I hopped in the car and headed over to a state park. I hadn't been there since I was in elementary school, so I wasn't too sure what to expect, but I figured it couldn't be worse than just staying at home!
When we first got there, we weren't quite sure where to go, so we just drove around the park for a bit. We found a sign for a walking trail and decided to go for it.
It was so green and lush. It's a really nice wooded area and once we hiked up the hill a bit, we got a great view of the Missouri River.
The hike was so good! Like I said, we hiked up the hill and then we hiked a ways down. It didn't seem too steep so we went pretty a few miles. Well, when we turned around we realized how steep it really was! I'm not gonna lie, I had to stop a few times going back up the hill to catch my breath! It was so worth it though and I kind of like that feeling as you hike around.
When we made it back to the car, we drove a bit closer to the river to get a better look.
So that was our trip! I really enjoyed it and it has me excited to go for another one. If I went back, I would probably bring stuff for a picnic since there were so many perfect spots for one.
What's on your summer bucket list? Have you made any progress on it yet? Do you have a favorite spot for day trips?
