Washington Monument State Park - June 14, 2012

For the final day trip for our anniversary week, we went to Washington Monument State Park.  This is yet another park that the Appalachian Trail runs through.  There isn't a whole lot to the park itself, and where we parked it was just a short (easy) hike to the monument.....which we were thankful for after the almost 6 miles we walked the day before!

The monument is made entirely of stone and is the first monument ever built for George Washington. 

It's located at the top of South Mountain, so of course it offers great views.

We ventured up to the top of the monument, where the views were even better.  Oliver loved going up to the top, but wasn't too sure about going down the steep set of stone steps :)


After we spent some time enjoying the views, we made our way back down the trail and stopped at a little playground they had in the park.  Redmond (and Oliver!) loved climbing, Redmond loved the slide too.

Another great day in the Great Outdoors!
