I'm happy when I'm camping . . .

My nephew Gordon and his family came on vacation from Texas.  We had talked to them before they came and decided that it would be really fun to go camping with them.  Their kids match up in age with our youngest 4.  So, we headed up to 3-bull flat in Greys River.  It looked a little stormy as we took off but we weren't worried.  (suspenseful music here)

When we got there it was getting pretty cloudy so we really scampered to get the tents up.

Of course as soon as we got the tents pitched, the storm blew over and it got nice and clear.  (happy applause and cheering)

We enjoyed eating dinner and sitting around the campfire.  

About bedtime we could hear some thunder way off behind the mountains.  Coren asked me if I thought it would rain and I said "Naw, I don't think we are going to get any rain."  (famous last words!)  About forty five minutes later, the clouds opened up and dumped on us.  It rained for about 3 hours!  

We didn't have sufficient rain flies on 2 of our tents and Gordon had a tarp sticking out from the edge of his tent that funneled water under his tent.  To make a long story short, we got VERY wet! 

It was pretty wet the next morning but was so beautiful and misty.  We saw several deer and the kids had a great time.  All in all, it was a pretty good time.  

We all got home tired and wet and had to dry a lot of gear but we made good memories!
