Camping Trip

We just went on our first camping trip of the year. There was a nice variety of weather - sun, wind and rain, to keep things interesting. ;) Still, it was a wonderful time and we loved being out of doors through it all.

Long Hike Short Legs
Fina and Kaya went on a long hike into the forest.

There used to be gold mines around here, and Fina searched for a nugget in a pile of tailings. She never found any gold, but hopes to go back and try again.

Top of the World
The views here are amazing and worth pondering.

Domos Climbing
Meanwhile, the Domos did a bit of mountain climbing. Go, Little D!

Mountain Town
One day we went to the nearby town of Rollinsville. It's tiny and hasn't changed much in the last hundred plus years.

Mei Mei
Mei and Fanchette (her bunny) spent most of their time looking for wildflowers.

Evenings in the Mountains
While we were camping I knit Mei a sweater set for the cool evenings.

Mei at Sunset
The sun was setting here, giving a glow to Mei's face.

Storm Clouds
And finally, the view from our camp. Puppy snuck into the photo in the lower righthand corner! :)
