The campground I stayed in overnight was brand new. It opened earlier this year. It was very nice. The problem with the rain, however, was that the campsites are dirt. They were about two inches of mud by the time I set up my tent. When the heavy rain started, it felt like my tent was floating on water and mud.
The sky cleared overnight and I awoke early to bright sunlight. I tried to lay things out to dry for a while before packing up. Some things did, others less so. I ended up getting late start again today, waiting for things to dry.
I felt really good this morning, almost like having the day before off rather than just a short day. I rode down the Hudson valley. It is such a wonderful place to ride. It has history, small towns, farms, all with the Catskill Mountains rising in the background. I enjoyed the ride so much today that I pushed myself a little too much considering the late start and ended up camping at the foot of the Catskills a l
ittle afer sunset.
