camping with the millers

last weekend we went camping at clarence fahnestock state park (about 2 hours north of the city) with our dear friends, mark and libby!  our adventure started friday evening, and after a dinner stop at a yummy greek restaurant in tarrytown, we finally made our way up to pitch our tents in the dark.  the next morning we awoke to a peaceful, gorgeous scenery of fall leaves, and later that afternoon we headed west to harriman state park for one of new york's favorite hikes.  during our little adventure we enjoyed...

 hot chocolate around the campfire.
 beautiful trees and landscapes.

good friends.
lib and i are wearing twinner jackets!

mark miller photography.
 their camera ran out of batteries, so we were lucky to let them borrow ours!

breakfast by whisper light. 
(instant oatmeal has never tasted so good)

taking silly pictures. 
(and wearing 3 layers of clothing)

hiking through harriman state park.

quality time with mark + libby.

Oh my gosh, it's so breathtaking!! We didn't really get to know Mark and Libby before we left, but Mark's brother and sister in law are RANDOMLY in our ward in California! We hung out with them this weekend-- bonfire on the beach :) Small world.
