Trips in 2020

Here’s all the trips that I took this past year.

Due to public health recommendations, we cancelled all planned trips and stuck to camping trips where we did not have to stop or interact with anyone along the way (so a 2 hour radius).

Business, Leisure & Family Trips

Victoria Bryant State Park – Fall 2020 – We stayed a few nights at the Bluebird Cottage. It was a lovely, small, quiet park. Good for hikers and golfers.

Fort Mountain State Park – Summer 2020 – We stayed at one of our favorite State Park cabins. Weather was hot, but had the Park to ourselves.

Las Vegas – January 2020 – I went to Las Vegas on a business trip and had a great time. Ate some New Mexican food – highly recommended.

High Falls State Park – March 2020 – Day Hike – The Oconee National Forest was too muddy, so I explored High Falls’ few short loops.

Little River @ Oconee NF – February 2020 – Overnight – We did a dispersed camp in the Oconee National Forest shortly after hunting season.

Burgess Mountain Trail – February 2020 – Day Hike – I did a short day hike and lunch on Burgess Mountain Trail, which is quite overgrown in the summer.

Sweetwater Creek State Park – January 2020 – Overnight – We stayed in the yurts for a night to try them out and get out of the house. Great time.

Mojave National Preserve – January 2020 – Day Hike – I got to drive out to Mojave National Preserve to hike and see some Joshua trees before meetings in Las Vegas.
