What better way to look up at the night sky than camping?
From breathtaking autumn leaves to cool and comfortable nights fall camping is an escape from our hectic lives.
A park ranger for the Neuse State Park, Eryn Staib, says ” it gives you quiet time to just think. Going out in the woods you just stand there and listen. You’re not hearing cars, not a lot of people out there, so it is a chance to just kind of relax.”
Some supplies to bring is a tent, to make sure you are prepared for rain, extra clothes, cleaning supplies for cookware, and to know what skill level you are at.
If it is your first time Staib recommends practicing in your backyard.
