It doesn’t get any better than this.
First, the campground. For $14, I got a hot shower, a tent spot overlooking a lake, and a stone fireplace pit suitable for cooking. This is Clarksburg State Park in the north west corner of Massachusetts. Here is the view from my tent door at dusk, with the light reflecting off the lake.
Then, in the morning, breakfast in the open air. Teapot with black tea rests on three charcoal brickettes. The mint is in a small flowerpot in the lower right corner. I’m roasting a marshmallow on a stick for s’mores.
