Skidaway is a Great Camping Getaway

I chose to stay in Georgia's Skidaway State Park over the Labor Day weekend to kick off my year of parks. Skidaway was perfect for camping with lots of privacy, hot showers and nature to explore. There was a tent pad for my tent, which worked great. (See a photo in the post before this one.) My view was peaceful. Every night I camp out I wonder how it can be so quiet. The scenery changes quite a bit from Atlanta to the coast as you see above in Summer Snow.

Here are several pictures within the park. I didn't realize that the crabs' shells were all the colors of the rainbow. I enjoyed the Big Ferry Trail. I took my road bike on the trail, which was okay. I got to practice steering around tree roots. But it really is a nice beginning mountain bike trail. The park clocks the path at 3 miles. I stopped at the observation tower with my camera. I spotted a great white heron from a distance.
