I didn't read as much as I'd imagined I would; every time I picked up my books, I'd fall asleep within 3 paragraphs. At least I got some rest, yah?
We started the trip out on a, er, "flat" note, blowing a tire along Highway 49.
Cooking over a fire is one of the best things about camping, and there is no lack of food with our group of friends. We all agreed that we overpack the groceries, and no one goes hungry as a result. Carnivores are especially welcome.
And don't forget the cold beer. I ended up passing on wine, and Negra Modela with lime & salt was my drink for the weekend. And this one from Trader Joe's wasn't bad, either.
Settling down with feet up around the campfire is perfect way to wrap up the day. One of ours brought a can of some cool stuff to sprinkle over the fire that turned the flames all different colors. Oooooo!
I did manage to get a few things "accomplished." I dragged along a new set of Prismacolor Pencils I purchased recently. There were 120 in the set, and I sharpened 90 of them before I tired and had to take another nap.
Sunday afternoon I accompanied the guys to the 4-wheeling trails, and while they rode, I went wandering about the countryside with my camera. No prize-winning photos that afternoon, but a few worth sharing:
Rain at the campground isn't ideal, but it was, in the long run, a nice way to wrap up the weekend.
