Camp Capers Caper Volksmarch – 10/25/2014

DSCF0132

Saturday we went down to the small town of Waring in the Texas Hill Country to do a 10K at Camp Capers which is an Episcopal Church Camp.  We’ve never had an event here before.  The walk started at the Waring Volunteer Fire Department and we walked out the highway to camp.
