The beach at Afton State Park

Here’s the beach at the park. It’s a river, but it’s very calm and a great place to wade or swim! Photo by McGhiever, Creative Commons license BY-SA 3.0,

I camped here in 2009 with my often-touring-friend Fred and our friend Matt. I woke up at night and noticed the the tent felt like a…waterbed. It took me a while to understand:  we were on top of an enormous amount of water pooled below the tent! I woke Fred up, we went outside, cleared the water somehow, and fixed the tarp to make sure water didn’t get back in. And we were still pretty dry inside!
