Camping...

So, here's how camping looks out here:

(This is South Park, where we find the BLM land and camp)

(Stoking the fire)

(Right after s'mores)

(An interesting 'pink' rainbow -- this picture doesn't really do it justice; the entire sky held a rosy glow)

(We saw some spectacular clouds during the day too)

I have to say, the beauty makes up for the cold (and sometimes wet) experience that is so often involved with camping in the Rockies :)

Do you? I'm honestly not a huge fan -- except that I know my kiddos love it, and I love to see their excitement :) And the beauty and company of good friends certainly helps!

Certainly was a nice private location!

We were pretty surprised at how quiet it was both weekends -- that area is very popular, but we drive to the back side and have a pretty isolated spot :)

Looks like a wonderful spot! I hope you have fantastic weather and see loads of cool animals and birds.

We didn't see many animals (well, other than cows), but there was a gorgeous 'camp robber' (gray jay?) who kept coming by.

Thanks for sharing those pictures. A very different landscape than we have in New York. so, so beautiful!

I know very little about New York -- you should post some pix with your scenery :) (hint, hint)

I'm not a big fan of cold or wet, and I'd rather not camp without an RV and a nearby shower (I am *wimpy*) but I do agree... the Rockies are lovely and you got some beautiful sky shots.

I have to agree (I don't like the cold and being alternatively dirty/sweaty/shivering without a hot shower) -- but I've learned to look for the good stuff (hehe) :)

Camping is definitely a learned enjoyment -- at least, it is for me :) I'm happy doing it a couple times a summer...
