My camping trip

Blue Rocks Family Campground

I went camping last weekend with a bunch of men from Goshen Baptist Church. The Blue Rocks Family Campground is in a spectacular location – right off the Appalachian Trail, where there are two wonderful overlooks – popular with both people and sunbathing rattle snakes – the Pulpit Rock and the Pinnacle. You can also hike to Hawks Mountain. The campground allowed us to camp there for free if we did a Sunday Morning Service! So we took them up on that! This is a new idea that they are trying out this year.

We did find a huge rattlesnake on the trail! It had a loud rattle that you could hear from quite a distance, which is actually a good thing, because you wouldn’t want to step on him accidentally. It really was spectacular to be out in God’s creation – to watch the hawks, and climb around on the rocks. The boulder river goes on for about a mile making it one of the natural wonders of Pennsylvania. We roasted a catfish over our camp fire!

I strongly recommend this place for people who are into hiking and camping. It is located about 15 miles north of Reading PA. The music at the church service was provided by Tom Rickert – one of the Soap Box Prophets, and Bob Parks gave a brief sermon on Psalm 103.

  1. Light load Towels three packs are the only towel that is also a tool for the outdoors. Use it as a fire starter coffee filter, water filter, first aid supplement, wind scarf, sweat band and much more. Waterproof packaging covers each piece; that always ensures that the user will have a clean dry cloth.
