Grand Canyon of PA Camping

We have been wanting to load up the camping gear and sleep out under the start for a while. With the days getting progressively cooler we knew our camping days were numbered for this year and it was now or never.

Grandma pulled and packed the tent, sleeping bags, cooking stove, lantern, and other camping necessities. Grandpa loaded them into the car carrier.

We thought it would be fun to go somewhere we had never been before and the Grand Canyon of PA was highly recommended. We booked a campsite and headed to Leonard Harrison State Park for a couple days.

After a two hour drive we arrived at our campsite, drove across a small river to our spot, and enjoyed a picnic lunch together.

This recipe was perfect for the trip. I prepared the sandwich the day before so no preparation was necessary at the campsite.

the filling
5 seeded & chopped plum tomatoes
1 cup chopped red, orange or yellow peppers
1/4 cup chopped pitted black olives (I use kalamata olives)
1/4 cup chopped red onion ( I increase this to 1/2 cup)
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil. Do not skip this ingredient!
2 tsp. balsamic or red wine vinegar
drizzle of olive oil
meat and cheese
EJ was ladybug girl and CJ crawled around as a spider.

After a short hike to see the Grand Canyon, we started setting up the tent.

EJ lit the lantern as soon as the sun started to go down and carried it around with her as Grandpa started the fire for dinner.

We fit all five of us into a two man tent and slept quite snugly. The kids woke up warm and happy the next morning.

Grandpa cooked his traditional egg, bacon and potato breakfast over the camp stove.

CJ had fun hanging out.

EJ did some bug collecting and identifying before we headed out for our long hike into the canyon.
