Last weekend – the last weekend prior to the 4th – which will now become an annual event, i got 2 fabulous campsites right on a reservoir and invited a bunch of different out doorsie people to join me/us!
Here is the campsite to the left
To the right, and closer to the right, you can see the tree in both! Great place to be!
We had found this camp site last year and decided to come again this year but get both the sites in what i call a “culdesac”
We had good times around the fire and enjoyed some serious relaxing and bonding time
Saturday was a hike we had attempted last year and were thrwated by the mosquitos! this year we were prepared and so were the pups! We had deet they had puppy spray – lemongrass and catnip and they are on heart worm! Suprise lake! It’s a portion of a much longer hike (9.3) – we did the 2.6 each way one!
It was the first time i had hiked with such a big crowd since girl scouts, but it was great!
Most of the time we were in the woods, mosquitos swarming, but not too too hot! Views were amazing and the columbines were gorgeous!
Hubby and another of the fellas say the hike was straight up hill… I thought it was ok! ;)
Definitely hope to do the whole 9.3 next year, or at least hike around Surprise Lake, it was so pretty!
- The deflate portion of the air pump for the air mattress is amazing
- We can put up our tent in super windy conditions
- Being without cell signal can be an amazing thing
