A little unknown fact about me is that I love hunting for secluded swimming holes during the summer. Pancho Dahl's Day Trips with a Splash is my go-to book for secret swimming holes throughout California. Matty and I have gone on many hiking adventures in the Sierras, Yosemite, Kings Canyon, Grass Valley, and Sequoia in search of pristine pools perfect for a summer dip. Most trips have proven fruitful, and I have only experienced one near-death accident last summer (I literally slipped from a vertical forty foot granite slab that fell into a rushing river full of rocks. I was luckily saved by my best friend who grabbed my hand amidst screams and laughs). Wanting to take advantage of Michigan's beautiful lakes and rivers, we went in search of a swimming hole in Pigeon River Country State Park. Our journey paid off, and we discovered a medium sized pool two miles from our campground. We spend the day picnicing and swimming.
The night before our hike, I picked some wildflowers for upcoming craft projects. I wore a gingham 1990s shirtdress and a straw hat for the early evening activity around our campground. And although this market bag was meant for the shop, I have fallen in love and will not part with it.
