For a few years now my uncle has been telling me about this impressive waterfall he saw one time while walking along Shore Trail somewhere between Englewood Cliffs and Alpine. That's a section of the park I haven't explored very much of but I finally had the opportunity to look for the falls while doing the Clinton Point Hike.

I'm in the park frequently but normally on shorter hikes that are closer to home. When I went to do Carpenter's Loop II a few days ago, Ross Dock was closed and there was a sign from Englewood Cliffs indicating the trail was closed. I looked at the map and realized I didn't have time to do the northern hike and I'd probably want at least a snack for that duration. It's about twice as long as Carpenter's II. I was able to get through Carpenter's but the next day I decided to finally tackle Clinton Point.

It was an incredible hike and Greenbrook Falls were pretty impressive.

Why Camp in an X3

The majority of my hiking is done at a local park. It has great views and some challenging parts and has a fairly extensive trail system and I can walk to it but it's nice to explore other trails in the New Jersey which is one of the reasons I like to go camping.

My normal car camping set up is pretty involved. I have a pop up canopy, large tent that can comfortably fit a queen sized air mattress with plenty of room to move around, hammock and extensive cooking gear plus other odds and ends. In addition I bring a lot of food for a 2 or 3 night trip. That all takes a lot of time to get out of storage, setup, pack up, clean out then store. I usually don't have all my gear back in storage for up to 3 days after a trip as I slowly take care of it here and there.

If I'm in the mood to change up my hiking trails or just need a break to be closer to nature, do a quick overnight trip to hit some new trails early in the morning, I wanted a quicker way to camp. If I'm camping by myself just for a night or two then I can significantly reduce what I bring.

Healthy Hash Brown Skillet Eggs PT2M PT12M PT14M Breafast eggs, healthy, breakfast, skillet, spinach
A healthy recipe to make skillet eggs with hash browns and spinach.

I've adapted this recipe from a few similar recipes I make. My main goal was to reduce fat and increase potassium intake. I wound up getting rid of the cheese that I would normally include as part of this easy breakfast recipe. Spinach was added for it's potassium among other things.

The healthy hash brown skillet eggs are very easy to make and quick enough to make every morning. Because they don't need a lot of attention.

Review of the Evanston Screened 6 tent from Eureka is a roomy 6 person dome tent with a 5'8" center height that includes a screened in front room.

I've been camping more recently and wanted to upgrade from my old 4 person tent to something a bit roomier and more comfortable to stand in. After looking at many different tents on the market I decided to go with the Eureka Evanston Screened 6 Tent and I've been very happy with that decision.
