If just a week ago or so I was in full fall blah mode, I am now solidly in full fall awe.
It certainly helps that not only are we having incredible weather here in Central Virginia but I also spent a glorious weekend in the mountains with very little on the agenda besides basking in the sunshine, eating, drinking, walking, and visiting.
It was the (totally unofficial) third not-quite-annual Babes in the Woods cabin trip!
It’s totally unofficial because there have been quite a few other camping and cabin trips with different conglomerations of this group over the last two years but it was the third time that I have been included in renting a PATC cabin and heading to the hills for the weekend with the ladies.
This time we rented the Robert Humphrey cabin. It was pretty plush compared to some of the others, it has electricity and we could drive right to it, unlike the other two which were a short hike.
It even has “running” water in the outdoor sink (gravity fed and cold from the spring up the hill).
Saturday was full of hiking, sunshine, and leaf gazing.
After an awesome and healthy breakfast, of course.
We partnered up to plan, shop for and prepare meals for the whole group and it was such a pleasure to get cooked delicious, hearty, and healthy meals all weekend (and fun when it was my turn on Sunday to make our group of 9 breakfast tacos).
Happy Hour, cabin-style;
I returned to town yesterday afternoon begrudgingly, all I really wanna do lately is smell like campfire smoke, drink (tea/coffee/wine), and walk or run in the woods. *sigh*
