Great Outdoors

September 6, 2011

Rachel and I are back from a long weekend camping at Big Bend campground in Monongahela National Forest. Depicted above, Rachel prepares a Girshick-family tradition – Krusteasz pancakes.

My sister’s family made the trek from Ohio to meet us. Sunday night was pretty soggy, but the “big bend” in the South Branch of the Potomac river once again did not disappoint. Among many other activities, my nieces Amanda and Claire (below), their dad, and I made a successful early morning fishing expedition during which we spotted a bald eagle in mid flight.  We also gave a pretty good beating to our neat new folding canoe/kayak (also below), but Rachel and I are excited about the places we hope to paddle this guy.
