A River Runs Through It

I went camping with my friend Chris and some friends of his this weekend at Swallow Falls in Western Maryland. It was pretty fun, although it was very cold. The second day we were there we hiked over to the falls and took some photos. I had a good time trying out my camera and realize that I have a lot to learn. I thought this picture was framed really well, but I am not the one who took it. Notice that the sweatshirt is a Goonies sweatshirt, which was Chris’ and is now mine. I don’t care if he wants it back, its the least I deserve from him. (Loooooong story)
The park was really beautiful and I realize that I like camping. A lot. I would prefer to camp with people I’m a little better friends with and I’d like a lot less drinking and a lot more hiking. There were 6 of us and 120 beers were consumed in 3 days. That is ridiculous. I think I can take credit for 10 total. The math doesn’t look good for the others. Another lesson in “this isn’t the way I want to live”, but I guess sometimes you have to learn that from experience.
I think this picture is my favorite. The falls were gorgeous and the river was so beautiful too. I just loved the sound that it made and I felt so peaceful there. I could have spent the entire day there, but I think I was the only one that who enjoyed sobriety.

Two more pictures. I have a ton and I think I may make a slide show. Not that pictures of a river are too exciting, but it was a nice chance to experiment a little bit with my camera. Now I need to learn Photoshop a little better.
