Some pictures of when Cheryl and I went camping. Even though it rained every day and every night we still had a good time.

This is pretty much how the complete week looked from the campsite.

But did I complain? No sireeeee. I had a good book, (Brisinger), I was warm, my chef kept me well fed so I was happy.

The streams were all swollen. This is near the headwaters of the Cub River and although it rained, rained, and rained some more the water was very clear.

Yep, we were just below the snow line. To have this much snow at this time of year is very extraordinary.

Beautiful meadows of flowers. Look how green the mountains are.

Let it rain. I came prepared. Almost didn't get the fire going it was so damp.

Aw yes, marshmallows to roast. I normally don't eat them but this time they seemed quite tasty.

Okay, enough of this crap. I wanna go home! Whether rain or shine three days is my limit.

Have a nice day everyone.

burned sugar...

hey, looks like a great place to camp.

The only problem is, I don't like to camp. Well, the camping part is fun. It's all the packing and cleaning and cleaning and packing.

Isn't Brisingr a GREAT BOOK!!?!? you know my oldest and I met him a few years ago when Eldest had just come out. He was home schooled just like my kids are. My oldest has been working on writing three separate novels for a few years and is excited to start at the local college this fall!

Looks like a fun camping trip! I guess you didn't have the camera out in the rain, cause I didn't see any of the wet stuff!

Sounds like a fun trip! Hi, friends. I was reading some old Christmas letters I kept and it had your blog info. Decided to check it out. I like to blog. Mine is Barb's Babblings. Worst part is the kids don't want me to use their names - DARN. I loved the picture of Katie and her family. WOW!! Think of you guys often and all the fun we had in Bakersfield.
