Inks Lake State Park

Ian, Court, Biff, Finn

As is becoming tradition, we headed out to one of our favorite state parks for Thanksgiving weekend.  This was originally slated to be a two night affair, but some exciting football scenarios played out and we wanted to make sure we were in a place to watch on Friday night.

Our regular site (#328) wasn’t available, so we took a chance on #304 which turned out to be awesome.  It’s a huge site with private lake access.  We could easily camp 3 separate tents here.

Bones for pups

After a couple of hours in town watching football, we went for a quick evening hike before starting up a fire and making dinner.

We woke up with the sun, packed up, and hit the trail for a longer hike to finish out the trip.

There was a fire out here this summer that consumed about 300 acres within the park and made for some really interesting burn zones on our hike.  There were huge swaths of burned cactus that looked like corpses on a battlefield.  Twas a bit eerie.
