This shot is from a trip to the north shore of Lake Superior. We were camped in Pukaskawa National Park. Great fall trip.

Last camping for the year for us.

Elk Neck State Park. Upper Chesapeake Bay. It snowed on us as we left. Propex kept us comfy.

I love Elk Neck for the boat launch at the top of the Bay, but the skeeters are brutal in summer..

I had posted these pictures before on another thread, but I think they also deserve to be here, they were taken on section 2 of the Washington Backcountry Discovery Road (WABDR), a trip that opened my eyes to what can be done with a Syncro and a group of like-minded friends!
