At the beginning of the summer, and thus the beginning of camping season, Rachel told me, “Mommy! The most fun thing about camping is s’mores. And the other most fun thing about camping is that you get to spend ALL DAY OUTSIDE!!!!”
We managed probably…10 separate camping trips, for a total of maybe…18 nights camping this summer. I think. I didn’t keep track. But I did make sure to take lots of pictures of our last camping trip. Our go-to campground at Ft. Abercrombie was closed for the season, so we headed to Buskin River instead.
Flaming yellow cottonwood leaves; dark green spruce needles; crisp blue skies and crisp autumn air! Family, hugs, winter coats, grumbling at mommy’s “just one more try for a picture!” S’mores, dollies, bicycles, and fairy houses. Followed by a chilly hike at Near Island, before home. Now we get to let our trailer hibernate for the winter!
