Fun Camping Pictures!

A few of my favorite photos from our recent camping trip:

First day - dogs are still clean


View from the hammock



River after a night of thunder storms
 
 
Black Sabbath and Rascal Flats - yes, that's right
 
 
Beautiful blue skies of Idaho
 
 
Such a flattering picture of me ... not! But after a freezing cold night, we thought it would be best to stay in our warm beds and read awhile. Notice that Sabbath (the dog) is doing his part to keep my daughter warm.
 
Last day. Last fire. Sun is shining. Time to head home to a flushing toilet. :)

  3. Gorgeous pictures! Makes me pine for the camping I did last year in Colorado, Montana and Wyoming, though we just had bags on mats. So. Much. Fun. Glad you all had a great trip!!!

  5. Great pics. In the first one, at first glance I thought you had a black bear in the camp.

  6. Can't beat a flushing toilet! I'm not a fan of camping, but if you have good equipment it can be fun!

    1. It's near Grand Jean - which is north of Lowman. We drive up I55 to Banks, turn right on the Banks-Lowman road, and then left at Lowman. Right at the Grand Jean sign, and then we take the first right (dirt roads) ... and then it gets twisty in there ... there are several designated areas where you can camp (no outhouses or water facilities). There's an actual campground if you drive clear into Grand Jean, but my husband doesn't like campgrounds. :) How are you guys doing? Miss you!

  10. Ha. Our black dog is HUGE, and so, yes, at first glance he looks like a bear! We rescued him from a shelter, but they told us he is predominately GOLDEN RETRIEVER - which is evident in his feathery tail and the shape of the top of his head. However, as he as aged, it's become quite clear that he has New Foundland (sp?) in him: his body shape and his coat.
