What I did this weekend

This weekend I was…

Camping Socks

  • Discovering forging across rivers is tough with a dog that hates the water
  • Finding that dragging dogs across rivers is better than dropping dogs in rivers
  • Pitching tents on cliff edges
  • Jumping into crystal clear deep pools
  • Discovering that carrying the tent, a chair, my stuff, some dog stuff, the food, and the stove may be my limit
  • Watching my boyfriend dare little kids they can’t reach sticks hanging over cliff edges and letting them chuck hatchets at trees
  • Finding out dogs like marshmallows
  • Getting my tent TP’d in the wilderness (I mean bear country!) at somewhere between 12:30 a.m. and 6:30 a.m.
  • Snuggling up with a dog in my tent- there isn’t anything better
  • Wasting time well

More tales and photos to come!

That sounds great. I do hope there was a fire for those marsh-mellows!

There actually was! I feel sort of guilty since we literally did have to backpack out to get to this area. Luckily that guilt only lasted like, two seconds :)
