i hate valentimes? caddo lake

elle, hunter trek, and i spent valentines day out at caddo lake on the texas-louisiana border.  swamp country.

it’s a whole other world out there.  we enjoyed the signs in uncertain, texas…

it was incredibly cold, but by far the best valentines day i’ve ever had.  neither of us like the “holiday” and feel it’s a bit contrived.

but spending the weekend hiking, playing card games, cooking out, and drinking wine was so enjoyable, i think it might become a tradition.
