We picked our state park soley for the purpose of touring the cave. Inside the visitor center the time line of the cave's history there was a line that read, "go gaga for Onondaga". Ha! Because close by was a sign that read "Bat Hybernation Cave closed till April 15". Bologna I say. The cave always opens in March! Why couldn't the website have warned cave seekers of this batty non-sense. Wake the bats. Tell them daylight saving time was about to kick in. So what if they are battling white-nose bat syndrome. We wanted the chance to go gaga over Onondaga [Cave].
Nevertheless we had a good over night get away. In 2002 they shut this park down, gutted and rehabbed the entire campground. It is really nice. We had only the company of a couple from Iowa tenting and another family in their mongo fifth wheel. We all spread far enough apart so not to feel one another's company.
Uli went on her first ever camping trip
since no one was around we defyed the park rules by letting our pouch go leashless
she did take the leash when I went for a run
the girlies cranked up the music and danced
(we've decided to go one more season with the pop-up
before buying the big boy)
As the sun was thinking of setting we played B-S
King Ralph doesn't wear a bullshit face to well
hence all the cards in his hands
Later in the night when the cold night air grabbed hold
we took the cards inside; changed to Uno
King Ralph's sausage fingers grasped the whole deck.
We made a roaring morning fire.
Ate bratwurst for lunch.
Then came home.
Next Spring Break adventure....
