Last fall we had planned a trip to Yellow Stone. This was a trip that we have had on our "bucket list" of places to go for years. Like 20 some years... we just never made it. Other things took precedence... things like family weddings, Girl Scout trips and camps... you know, life in general.
We had our camp reservations and as the time drew closer we started watching the fire danger and the weather reports.
Fire danger and air quality were a real concern since there were fires in the area. And then the weather turned cool with moisture moving in. It was only going to be one or two days with about 20% chance of showers. No biggie... we can handle it. And then they were suddenly talking about every day with showers. We purchased rain gear and we were still not daunted.
The camper was basically loaded and they predicted snow. WHAT??? We packed in our winter gear, but not thrilled about it. **sigh**
It came down to the day before we were to leave and my husband suggested a sudden change in plans. You can read the entire story over at Our Mountain Town Vacation.
In short, we visited some mountain towns and enjoyed some long bike rides. The ride that stands out to me is when we rode (ok, pushed) our bikes up the original Wolf Creek Pass near Pagosa Springs, CO... well, as far as we could go because there was a downed tree laying across the trail.
We enjoyed the view for a bit and then began our descent down the trail.
Pat Sloans' Things You Do block reminded me of the downed tree... because though the setting of these blocks is designed to be on point, mine will be square - meaning that my block is going to look like a fallen tree...
I can't wait for more fun this year! The camper is ready to go and so am I.
What do you do when you go camping?
Do you know of some great trails to ride?
Leave a comment and let me know. I love to hear from my readers.
