Over the weekend, I went camping with my boyfriend and our two dogs. We went to Joseph D. Grant Park, which is just in the hills of San Jose and is perfect for a short weekend camping excursion! My boyfriend and I have been together for 5 years, but we had never gone camping together before, so it was really nice to do something new! We don’t own any camping gear, so my friend was kind enough to lend us everything we needed.
We arrived around 12:30pm on Saturday and then went for a 3 hour hike! At Grant Park, there are over 50 miles of hiking trails, so we had a great time wandering around on them and ended up at a gorgeous lake. In the evening, we roasted some hot dogs over the campfire and made s’mores too of course. The weather was pretty perfect and it wasn’t too cold.
Even though it was a short trip, we had a really wonderful time and can’t wait to go camping again! Plus, it was nice to cross something off my fall adventure list!
