We spent the month of June camp hosting at our favorite Indiana State Park, McCormick’s Creek.
Usually when camp hosting at the park (this is our 5th summer), we are on A Loop, but this year were parked on B Loop, which is a little more wooded and shady.
Although we had more rain than we would have liked, there were days when we could hike the park trails.
The site had an area that traditionally stays muddy, but with the help of park employees, we mulched the area and added a little color.
We had several hummingbirds feeding daily.
The month became like a retreat for us. I enjoyed catching up on reading, and Ron began carving another wooden chain.
This is the 6th chain he has carved. One hangs in the Nature Center of the Park.
In addition to several visits from family members, we enjoyed visiting often with fellow camp hosts, Bennie and Mabel Smith. Some evenings were actually cool enough to enjoy sitting near a fire.
We took a weekend off from the month to celebrate Christmas In the Summer with our family, traveling to brother Gary’s cabin in eastern Kentucky.
The location is beautiful, with the cabin overlooking the Daniel Boone National Forest.
Seventeen family members spent the night in the small cabin, making for a lot of fun. (We even had a Charlie Brown Christmas tree!)
June was a good month for us. We left the park at the end of the month to spend a couple of weeks with family, but will return to camp host for another month starting July 15.
