we tried you twice before. once last year and again a few months ago. i gave you very mixed reviews. this time was different. it was fun. and i can't even tell you what specifically made the two days we spent at o'nell regional park campground so perfect. it just was.

ok, maybe there were a few things...

maybe because it was seriously BEAUTIFUL.
