Saturday Snapshot: Camping in Northern New York State

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Melinda at West Metro Mommy Reads.

Last week, we traveled to New York State (my home state) for a double-reunion weekend (both college and family). As always, we brought our pop-up camper along and enjoyed a bit of quiet time in nature amid the noise and chaos of the reunions (which, of course, were a lot of fun!). These pics are from northern NY - Selkirk Shores State Park, on the eastern shore of Lake Ontario (beautiful at sunset!) and kayaking at Higley Flow State Park, just north of the Adirondacks, on a dammed portion of the Racquet River.

One last look at the sunset - time to head back to camp and relax!

We saw a couple of what we think were seagulls but with unusual markings

Hope you are enjoying a good weekend! Catch-up weekend here after our trip last week.

  1. Looks like a fun trip! The state parks look beautiful. Great places to explore in a kayak or on foot.
    My Saturday Snapshot post also features ”kayaking.”
