mini-trip: clinton lake part 2














Some background: finding time to get away is difficult with a couple consisting of a full-time education student working part-time and a full-time worker with a solo project and band. finding that time that is always scheduled  and cash that is always being used for personal hobbies/"living", is so rare. finding ourselves engulfed in different surroundings is something we don't come across often, but always strived for.

   With my summer break recently started, and my boyfriend taking his vacation from work, we decided to take some time away from our personal schedules and seek solitude elsewhere. Clinton lake was a place I had never traveled to before in Kansas, but it was one of his favorites when he lived in a town close to there. We pitched our dome tent, sleeping with just pillows and a sheet, and drink cheap beer over a campfire. The day time hours comprised of nature trails, fishing, the beach, and relaxing.
   With weekends like this, I don't know if I could leave the Midwest. Such simple trips as camping, mean so much more... just the ability to leave my urban surroundings, and find myself in the mist of a completely new environment without trouble, is a place I don't want to escape.

  3. Aw you were so close to me! (Was that creepy, it sounded creepy). Anyway, that is exactly the way I feel about the Midwest. It's like...you have everything within a day's drive. Looks like you had fun! Clinton Lake has the most amazing dog park that we go to called Mutt Run.
