Last Sunday I traveled to Devil’s Lake State Park with one of my friends to go hiking. This was one of the top 5 things that I wanted to do this summer. I have been wanting to go to Devil’s Lake for several years but haven’t been able to fit it in my schedule, so we decided to go late Sunday afternoon. We were extra happy when we found out that it was free state parks weekend!
Close to the beginning of our adventure. I was surprised by how difficult it was to walk up the trail! I workout regularly and still found it to be very intense.
I promise I complained a lot about this IRL stair master.
I was very excited to find a cave halfway along the way.
This was my first time seeing this view in years, I had forgotten how pretty it is.
Love this view and this woman.
This was one of my favorite parts of the hike. The water was pretty, but I love the hills and green.
Look at that little baby moon.
An important part of a trip to Devil’s Lake is a ride on the Merrimac Ferry afterwards. My mom always brought us this way and it is a ton of fun. If you haven’t been on the ferry, you need to try it out! It’s free and there is a delicious ice cream stand.
The ice cream is definitely one of the perks of taking the ferry.
The beautiful view is pretty wonderful, too.
We had an amazing trip. Do you think you’ll make it to Devil’s Lake this summer?
