Camping Part 3

One day we went to a little town called Cuchara to get ice and milk. It is tiny, and just like you would imagine a western town to look. Cuchara
I like this town!

Do You Come Here Often? I chatted with this wooden Indian for a while. He was very nice.

Cuchrara's Dog Bar Cuchara has one general store and two places to eat. We got to eat at The Dog Bar because they really do allow dogs! That was fun for us and our puppy-girl.

Breakfast Room Mama calls our campsites our 'outdoor mansion.' This is the breakfast room.

Photobucket Here's Papa getting water.

Photobucket This is the dining room. We didn't have mosquitoes because it was too high up and cool, but there were flies in the afternoon and early evening.

Photobucket And finally, here is another friend I made.

Now I love camping and can't wait to go again! ` Tangy

Camping Part2 - Bears!

And I got scared! OH MY!
Tangerine: "YIKES! There are bears here! Summer Lark said there were no bears, but I found proof that there are!"
Now I'm Scared!
Tangerine: "You said there were no bears here!"

Summer Lark: "Well, there aren't any here now.""

Tangerine: "But, they are around somewhere! I'm going to find a safe place to hide""

Summer Lark: "Tangy, you are plastic and so you've got nothing to worry about.""

Tangerine: "I don't trust you any more and you're not my favorite big sister either!""

Summer: "Ugh! Kids!""
Tangy: "I feel safe here in the river."

Summer: "Oh sure. You know, bears love fish!"

Tangy Goes Camping- Part 1

From Tangerine: I went on my first camping trip and it was fun! I was a little scared to be in the wilderness, but I was my bravest and got used to it. It was Summer Lark's second time camping so she told me all about it. First Day of Camping
At first I kept hearing lot of noises in the woods, but Summer said there were no bears there.

This Is Where We Cook

Summer showed me that this is where Mama cooks. I like the coffee pot, but I don't like coffee!


I took a walk in the woods and made some new friends! They wanted to come home with me because they were tired of eating roots and berries. More about that later!

Mining Days

One day we hiked around an old gold mine way up on the top of a mountain. It was really cool. The mines are open again because the price of gold is high, but they don't dig for gold like they did in the olden days. I looked and looked for a nugget of gold and never found one, Next time I'm bringing a shovel! This was near Cripple Creek, Colorado.

Keep Out!

There were lots of cool old buildings, but Mama said to stay out!

I'll be back with more pics later! ~ Tangerine

Dolly Friends

From Tangerine...

Today I made lots of friends.  LOTS!!!  We went to lunch and I got to play with a bunch of girls that look kind of like me.  But, they had all different colors of hair and eyes and clothes and it was really fun to see.

Chautauqua Meet
See how many of us there were!  Can you find me?  teehee

Are You a Real Princess?
I think I might have met a real princess.  She had a crown and flowing hair.  I wish I had a crown like that!

I'm going to be gone for two weeks on a camping trip so I'll talk to you later!

Out and About with Tangerine

I have been going lots of places lately.  Mama and Papa took me to a rock concert!  Seriously!  I thought I was too young and they were too old, teehee.  But, the best part was it took place at a beautiful, outdoor, natural amphitheater called Red Rocks.  And guess what?  It really IS made of red rocks.  Giant ones!

Rocking on the rocks
Are we there yet?  It was a long hike to get up there.  They have oxygen at the top for people not used to that!

Red Rocks Amphitheater
There were a lot of people there.  I was probably the only doll!

Close Your Eyes and Listen
Today was much calmer.  We took a walk by our favorite creek and I stopped to close my eyes and listen to the whispers of the dancing waters.

Hugs from Tangy
